Cabin Stowage of Personal Wheelchairs
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides guidance criteria for the storage of personal wheelchairs in the passenger compartment of transport category aircraft, which have not been provided by the air carrier and are designated for the sole use of the passenger requiring such assistance.
This document has been determined to contain basic and stable technology which is not dynamic in nature. The technical committee suggests that users also refer to the following for addtional standards and guidance: • Canadian Transportation Agency publication Carriage of Mobility Aids on Board Planes, Trains and Ferries • Canadian Transportation Agency publication Code of Practice: Aircraft Accessibility for Persons with Disabilities – For fixed-wing aircraft with 30 or more passenger seats • European Aviation Safety Agency publication EASA.2008.C.25, Carriage by Air of Special Categories of Passengers • United States Code of Federal Regulations 14 CFR Part 382 – Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel
