Final special conditions; request for comments - These special conditions are issued for the Airbus Model A330- 243 series airplane. This airplane, as modified by TC Inter-Informatics A.S.

This design feature is single-occupant, oblique B/E Aerospace Super Diamond seats, equipped with inflatable lapbelts. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
