DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AK83 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: Medium Flocking Bird Test at Climb Condition 

This rulemaking would add an additional medium flocking bird test to existing requirements, in response to the January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 Hudson River ditching. The subsequent investigation revealed existing requirements do not adequately demonstrate engine core bird ingestion capability at climb condition. The intended effect of the proposed rule is to ensure that future engine designs will be robust against core bird ingestions at climb condition.
