Special Condition 25-64-NW-2, Amendments 2 and 3 thereon, issued 5/18/79, and 12/12/79, respectively, apply to Boeing Model 727-200 series airplanes equipped with an operative automatic takeoff thrust control (ATTCS) system and issued an original airworthiness certificate on and after 12/3/80.

Equivalent Safety Findings exist with respect to CAR 46.651(d)(3)(i) and CAR 4b.651(d)(3)(iii).

Other Information:

See "Data Pertinent to All Models."

Data Pertinent to All Models

Minimum Crew for all Flights:
Three (3) pilot, copilot, and flight engineer.

Leveling Means:
A plumb bob attachment and leveling provision scale are provided in the left wheel well on 727/727-100 and 727C/727-100C airplanes, and in the right wheel well on 727-200 airplanes.

Control Surface Movements:
To insure proper operation of airplane, the movement of the various control surfaces must be carefully controlled by proper rigging of the flight control systems. The airplane must therefore be rigged in accordance with the following FAA-approved Data:

See Section I or Section II, as appropriate.
Compliance with the following optional requirements has been established: CAR 4b.361, "Ditching Provision"
CAR 4b.640, "Ice Protection"

Production Basis:
Production Certificate Number 700.

Required Equipment:
The basic required equipment as prescribed in the applicable airworthiness regulations (see certification basis) must be installed in the aircraft for certification. The required equipment is included in the Type Design data. See appropriate Weight and Balance Manuals and Note 8 for replacement passenger seats.

Service Information:
Boeing Report D6-4062, "Structural Repair Manual" is FAA-approved. Service bulletins and other service information when FAA-approved, will carry a statement to that effect.

Current Weight and Balance Document, including list of equipment included in certificated weight empty and loading instructions, must be in each aircraft at the time of original certification and at all times thereafter, except in the case of operators having an approved weight control system.

The aircraft must be operated in accordance with the FAA Approved Airplane Flight Manual.


(a) The fuel controls approved for use with these engines are Hamilton Standard Models JFC 60-1 (JT8D-1, -1A, -7, -7A, and -7B), JFC 60-2 (JT8D-9, -11, -15, 15A, and -17, 17A), and JFC 60-3 (JT8D-17R, 17AR).

(b) The anti-icing system airflow regulating valve approved for use with this engine is Pratt & Whitney Part No. 480888. P&WA Orifice Plate Part No. 528226 may be used in lieu of the valve.

(a) JP-1, JP-4 and JP-5 fuels conforming to P&WA Specification No. 522 and later revisions may be used separately or mixed in any proportions without adversely affecting the engine operation or power output. No fuel control adjustment is required when switching fuel types.

(b) Phillips anti-icing fuel additive PFA-55MB may be used if concentration delivered to airplane does not exceed 0.15% by volume. No fuel system anti-icing credit is allowed.

A list of the FAA-approved Interior Arrangement Drawings for all models of the Boeing 727 aircraft is contained in Boeing Document D6-6903.


The airplane design vertical load factors exceed TSO C-39 requirements at all fuselage stations for 727, 727-100, 727C, and 727-100C models and aft fuselage station 950D for 727-200 models: therefore, replacement passenger seats must be evaluated for compliance with CAR 4b.358(c) accordingly.

Combinations of engines which can be intermixed and their respective limitations are covered in the FAA Approved Flight Manuals or AFM Appendices.

NOTE 10:

Model 727, 727-100, 727C, 727-100C, 727-200 and 727-200F. Airplanes of these models that have not had any flight time before December 1, 1973, and are issued an original U.S. Standard Airworthiness Certificate after December 1, 1973, must show compliance with FAR Part 36. Configurations that meet the noise requirements are shown in Appendix 33 of the FAA Approved Airplane Flight Manual for the Model 727, 727-100, 727C, and 727-100C, and in Appendix 12 of the FAA Approved Flight Manual for the Model 727-200 and 727-200F.

Model 727-200. Noise characteristics, approved type design configurations, including required acoustical treatment and certification status of Model 727-200 airplanes operated at brake release gross weight from 172,500 pounds to a maximum of 203,100 pounds approved before December 1, 1973, are shown in the FAA Approved Model 727-200 Airplane Flight Manual.

NOTE 11:
There are service bulletins which call for modifications which do not comply with the Type Certification Basis. These service bulletins are listed in Boeing Document D6-9825 titles "Service Bulletin 727". The records of airplanes imported into the USA should be reviewed to be sure that further modifications are accomplished to ensure compliance, if the non FAA-approved service bulletins modifications have been installed.
