Type design--meaning

             (1)  The type design of an aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller (except an aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller type certificated under regulation 21.029 or 21.029A) consists of the following:

                     (a)  the drawings and specifications contained in technical data approved under regulation 21.009 for the aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller, and a list of those drawings and specifications;

                     (b)  information on dimensions, materials, and processes necessary to define the structural strength of the aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller;

                     (c)  the airworthiness limitations section of the instructions for continued airworthiness:

                              (i)  as required by the airworthiness standards mentioned in Parts 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33 and 35 and the airworthiness standards prescribed by the Part 21 Manual of Standards, or as otherwise required by CASA; or

                             (ii)  for special classes of aircraft mentioned in subregulation 21.017(2)--as specified in the applicable airworthiness criteria;

                     (d)  the operating limitations and other information necessary for the safe operation of the aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller as required by the airworthiness standards mentioned in Parts 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33 and 35, and the airworthiness standards prescribed by the Part 21 Manual of Standards, and as specified in the applicable airworthiness criteria for special classes of aircraft mentioned in subregulation 21.017(2);

                     (e)  for primary and intermediate category aircraft, if maintenance on the aircraft is to be carried out by the pilot-owner of the aircraft--a special inspection and preventive maintenance program designed to be accomplished by the pilot-owner;

                      (f)  any other data necessary to allow, by comparison, the determination of the airworthiness of later aircraft, aircraft engines or propellers of the same type.

             (2)  The type design for an aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller type certificated under regulation 21.029 consists of the following:

                     (a)  the drawings and specifications contained in technical data approved under regulation 21.009 for the aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller, and a list of those drawings and specifications;

                     (b)  information on dimensions, materials, and processes necessary to define the structural strength of the aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller;

                     (c)  the airworthiness limitations section of the instructions for continued airworthiness:

                              (i)  as required by the airworthiness standards mentioned in Parts 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33 and 35 and the airworthiness standards prescribed by the Part 21 Manual of Standards, or as otherwise required by CASA; or

                             (ii)  for special classes of aircraft mentioned in subregulation 21.017(2)--as specified in the applicable airworthiness criteria;

                     (d)  the operating limitations and other information necessary for the safe operation of the aircraft, aircraft engine or propeller as required by the airworthiness standards mentioned in Parts 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33 and 35, and the airworthiness standards prescribed by the Part 21 Manual of Standards, and as specified in the applicable airworthiness criteria for special classes of aircraft mentioned in subregulation 21.017(2);

                     (e)  for primary category aircraft, if maintenance on the aircraft is to be carried out by the pilot-owner of the aircraft--a special inspection and preventive maintenance program designed to be accomplished by the pilot-owner;

                      (f)  any other data necessary to allow, by comparison, the determination of the airworthiness of later aircraft, aircraft engines or propellers of the same type.

             (3)  The type design for an aircraft type certificated under regulation 21.029A consists of the type design that was accepted by the national aviation authority of the recognised country that issued the foreign type certificate for the aircraft.
