From Jan. 29: On Feb. 1, the revised Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Form 8130-3 will enter into force, replacing the previous form dated June 1, 2001. A presentation outlining the major changes is available here.

The document is used for domestic airworthiness approval of new products and articles; approval for return to service of altered aircraft parts; and export airworthiness approvals of aircraft engines, propellers, or articles.
