Crew Restraint System

1976-02-15
HISTORICAL
ARP998A
This ARP is intended to make recommendations for flight crew and cabin attendant restraint systems in aircraft. A properly designed crew restraint system will avoid injury or debilitation during a survivable crash and enable post crash assistance to occupants and escape from the aircraft. Consideration is given to existing requirements of the FAA and to the recommendations of aircraft operators and those involved in the manufacture or use of restraining devices. Crew member safety is the primary objective, with appropriate provisions for crew comfort taken into consideration. The criteria established herein are designed to standardize restraining systems without hindering the development of new, improved systems.

PASSENGER SEAT DESIGN COMMERCIAL TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT

HISTORICAL
ARP750A
In addition to those aspects of a passenger seat such as comfort and appearance, the passenger seat, whether aft, forward, or side-facing, is the basic link that supports and ties the air transport passenger to the aircraft structure. It is essential that the support and tiedown functions be accomplished in a manner that will provide maximum safety and security during all normal conditions of flight, emergency flight maneuvers and crash landings, whether on land or sea and that these functions not be compromised to attain the comfort and appearance features.

ARP6963
Define an objective criteria for serious injury inflicted on an occupant (passenger) following an emergency landing (CFR 25.561/25.562). The document herein is limited to evaluation of the CFR 25.785 (b) & (d), which encompasses the potential sharp edge formation caused by the test dummy’s head striking the seat and/or other structures (shroud, monitor, handset, glass from monitor, etc).

Abuse Load Testing for In-Seat Deployable Video Systems

2001-03-01
HISTORICAL
ARP5475
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides guidelines for abuse load testing of a deployable Individual Video System (IVS). The abuse load testing defined in this ARP is intended to only address the evaluation of the deployable IVS regarding stowage of the system and injurious projections/protrusions as a result of passenger interaction with the video system. Other aspects of the video system design or qualification may require additional testing or analysis and are outside the scope of this ARP. This ARP is not intended to address customer satisfaction or reliability aspects of individual designs.

Photometric Data Acquisition Procedures for Impact Test

2003-05-21
HISTORICAL
ARP5482
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) defines the test set-up requirements, general analysis procedures, and test report documentation for impact tests where photometric analysis of the high speed film or digital video will be required to obtain target paths (typically the Anthropomorphic Test Dummy (ATD) head path and knee path). Such tests support the requirements of AS8049 - Performance Standard for Seats in Civil Rotorcraft, Transport Aircraft and General Aviation Aircraft. These setup and analysis procedures are applicable to conventional, geometry based, two-dimensional analysis. If a more sophisticated technique that allows cameras to be installed at oblique angles for two or three-dimensional analysis is used, then the specific procedures required by that technique supersede any conflicting procedures contained herein.

Modification or Replacement of Components on Dynamically Certified Seat Systems

2001-10-01
HISTORICAL
ARP5497
This document outlines the engineering evaluation appropriate for modifying or replacing components of a previously certified seat when the certification process is based on qualification to the requirements of AS8049, which includes dynamic testing. The engineering evaluation presented in this document may be used to determine if a modification (including replacement of a component) is a minor change with respect to meeting the dynamic testing requirements described in AS8049. Whenever a modification is considered, the ability to meet all requirements of the applicable Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) must be verified. For example, this would include the capability to meet requirements such as flammability and flotation. Analysis and/or test data supporting the ability of the new materials and/or configuration to meet the applicable requirements must be submitted with the change documentation.
