Lightning and Static Hazards Relative to Airworthiness 700916

The paper updates, and briefly extends, the statistical information on lightning strikes to aircraft given in the author's 1968 paper. The problems and potential dangers of both lightning strikes and static build-up on aircraft are discussed and illustrated with particular reference to airworthiness. Conclusions are drawn regarding problem and potential problem areas where further information is required and towards which research effort should be directed.
In the light of the above, current and future airworthiness requirements are considered.
