Bizliner operators would be required to incorporate technology to meet reduced levels of flammability exposure in fuel tanks, under FAA proposed rulemaking. The requirements would apply to new airframe designs, as well as some 3,200 U.S.-registered Airbus and Boeing airplanes in operation. In-service aircraft would have seven years from the rule’s effective date to comply. Comments on the proposal are due by March 23 next year.
