14 CFR Part 27 — Airworthiness Standards: Normal Category Rotorcraft

This regulation deals with the small rotor wing aircraft and is consistent to part 23 with limiting the passenger seating to nine or less. However, the maximum certificated weight is limited to 7,000 pounds. It contains the same six design subparts identified in part 23, which provides the details for developing the aircraft.

14 CFR Part 29 — Airworthiness Standards: Transport Category Rotorcraft

This part (section) specifies those standards applicable to rotorcraft with a maximum certified weight greater than 7,000 pounds. However, it also includes additional parameters based upon seating capacity and an additional weight limit. Those parameters are passenger seating, (nine or less, ten or more) and whether the rotorcraft is over or under a maximum weight of 20,000 pounds. The same six design subparts exist in this part as are in parts 23, 25, and 27.
