I'm curious if any FTEs out there are about to embark upon a part 23 certification program under the new rules that were finally signed into law and posted to the federal register the end of December. I'd be interested to hear how things are different, easier, better.

To quote a nugget I found on AvWeb:
The new approach to GA airplane certification will likely apply to future reforms for other aircraft such as transport category airplanes and rotorcraft, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said. “We do see this as a template,” he said. “This is not the last of these you’re going to see.”

Reading that gets me curious to understand how the changes to performance based standards changes the business of flight testing and how certification is demonstrated. Who knows, maybe part 25 might head down this road before my kids retire.

I've not used the new standards yet but have the general impression they are intended to make it easier to install various avionics packages that make flying safer for general aviation. As long as the box you install doesn't interfere with the basic airplane, why not allow it?
