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.
Recent developments in solid state light sources have resulted in the need to address a number of issues including chnages in light output with temperature, end of life determination (EOL), and measurement conditions.
