Aircraft Cabin Safety and Interior Crashworthiness

The certification of transport category cabin interiors requires a thorough understanding of Part 25 Transport Category aircraft cabin interior safety and crashworthiness regulations and compliance requirements. Regardless of whether it is a simple modification, a specialized completion (VIP or VVIP) or airline passenger configuration, engineers, designers, and airworthiness personnel must understand and adhere to these requirements. This two-day seminar will begin with a discussion of Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) test requirements.
