BASIC CRITERIA FOR AIRWORTHINESS REQUIREMENTS

Gerhard Waibel

Abstract


OSTIV President, Professor Loek M.M. Boermans, has asked the OSTIV Sailplane Development Panel to extend the application range of OSTIV Airworthiness Standards (OSTIV AS) to slightly higher but mainly lower take-off weights (TOW) than sailplanes and powered sailplanes currently covered by OSTIV AS. In order to adapt the data and numbers given in OSTIV AS for other TOW in a suitable and clever way, basic criteria for airworthiness requirements must be established, or, when already available, they must be revised and implemented into the coming SDP efforts. The author tries to summarize, what he already knows about the subject and asks for more input on the subject in order to complete the basic requirements.
