14 CFR Part 23

[Docket No. CE287; Special Conditions No. 23-227-SC]

Special Conditions: Honda Aircraft Company Model HA-420 Hondajet, 
Fire Extinguishing; Withdrawal

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final special conditions; withdrawal.


SUMMARY: The FAA is withdrawing a previously published notice granting 
special conditions for the Honda Aircraft Company model HA-420 jet 
airplane. We are withdrawing Special Condition No. 23-227-SC through 
mutual agreement with Honda Aircraft Company.

DATES: This special condition published on September 23, 2008 (73 FR 
54675) is withdrawn, effective April 27, 2015.

Administration, Small Airplane Directorate, Aircraft Certification 
Service, 901 Locust, Room 301, Kansas City, MO 64106; telephone (816) 
329-3239; facsimile (816) 329-4090, email [email protected].



    On September 23, 2008, the FAA published Special Condition No. 23-
227-SC for the Honda Aircraft Company new model HA-420. The HA-420 is a 
four to five passenger (depending on configuration), two crew, 
lightweight business jet with a 43,000-foot service ceiling and a 
maximum takeoff weight of 9,963 pounds. The airplane is powered by two 
GE-Honda Aero Engines (GHAE) HF-120 turbofan engines mounted above the 
wings towards the aft of the airplane.
    On October 11, 2006, Honda Aircraft Company applied for a type 
certificate for their new Model HA-420 aircraft. On October 10, 2013, 
Honda Aircraft Company requested an extension with an effective 
application date of October 1, 2013. This extension changed the type 
certification basis to amendment 23-62.

Reason for Withdrawal

    The FAA is withdrawing Special Condition No. 23-227-SC because 
Honda Aircraft Company elected to revise the model HA-420 certification 
basis to amendment 23-62. This amendment contains adequate and 
appropriate standards for engine fire extinguishing systems.
    The authority citation for this Special Condition withdrawal is 49 
U.S.C. 106(g), 40113 and 44701; 14 CFR 21.16 and 21.17; and 14 CFR 
11.38 and 11.19.


    Withdrawal of this special condition does not preclude the FAA from 
issuing another notice on the subject matter in the future or 
committing the agency to any future course of action.

    Issued in Kansas City, Missouri on April 20, 2015.

Manager, Small Airplane Directorate, Aircraft Certification Service.
