Cargo Compartment Lighting for Transport Category Aircraft and Rotorcraft
This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes design guidance for adequate and safe cargo compartment and cargo access lighting systems. The adoption of a standard set of illumination values, found appropriate for the performance of the task in specified areas, should expedite ground handling and improve flight and ground safety.
This document establishes minimum performance levels for aircraft cargo compartment lights. Information contained herein has been expanded from ARP1283A in the areas of measurement conditions, lumen maintenance, and the inclusion of specific information relative to the use of Light Emitting Diodes and High Intensity Discharge Light source technologies.
