Safe Carriage of Impaired and Disabled Passengers

2013-04-04
CURRENT
AIR1815A
This AIR defines the major groups of impairments and disabilities among passengers who use aircraft as a transportation mode, and the types of safety problems which might be associated with each impairment. These impairments, and their safety-related problems, should be considered when referring to ARP's related to the design of cabin furnishings and equipment.

Accommodation for Passengers with Ambulatory Disabilities in Transport Category Aircraft Cabins with Seating Capacities Greater than 44

2009-12-18
CURRENT
ARP4387B
The methods and designs presented herein shall not be construed as being the only means of accomplishing these accommodations. This document applies to all transport category aircraft using features required by Department of Transportation Regulations CFR382. Passengers with ambulatory disabilities for whom provisions shall be made on each airplane type and location(s) for their seating are defined in 14CFR382. The goal is to provide cabin service comparable to that available to other travelers without jeopardizing the safety of fellow passengers. This necessitates consideration of physical, neurological and sensory capabilities, and limitations of mobility impaired persons. With proper consideration and design implementation, it will be possible to serve the needs of the majority of the disabled population.

Recommended Brace Positions

2008-08-13
CURRENT
ARP4771
This document contains information that can be used by the air transportation industry to provide passengers with consistent "Brace for Impact" positions in passenger safety information and briefings. This information is intended to reduce the potential confusion passengers may experience upon being presented with different "Brace for Impact" positions as they travel on different aircraft or on different carriers. This document does not address child restraint or situations where adult passengers are seated behind fixed tables.

Safety Considerations of Carry-On Baggage Relating to the Emergency Evacuation of Transport Category Aircraft

2016-05-31
CURRENT
ARP4072A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides information and recommended guidelines for handling carry-on baggage prior to emergencies and during the emergency evacuation of transport category aircraft. Recommendations are provided on limiting the size, amount, and weight of carry-on baggage brought into the cabin, improved stowage of carry-on baggage to minimize hazards to passengers in flight and during emergency evacuations, and procedures to ensure carry-on baggage is not removed during an emergency evacuation.

Safety Briefings for Passengers in Exit Rows

2009-01-13
CURRENT
ARP5655
This SAE ARP provides guidance for (1) ensuring passenger suitability for being seated in an exit row and (2) the standardization of safety briefings for passengers, seated at exits, who may be responsible for opening exits on transport airplanes during an emergency. This recommendation is primarily for briefing passengers seated in the Type III overwing exit row, but may be applied to briefing passengers responsible for other exit types. In addition, these recommendations pertain to briefings on airplanes on which the flight attendants would conduct the exit row briefing, and to briefings on airplanes without flight attendants, on which pilots would conduct the briefing.

Safety Instructions for Sight-Impaired Passengers

2014-04-14
CURRENT
ARP5446A
These recommendations are provided to aid the international air transport industry by identifying a standard, minimum amount of safety instructions that should be given to sight-impaired passengers. This document is not meant to address problems associated with communicating safety information to sight-impaired passengers who are also hearing impaired or non-conversant in the language(s) used by the cabin crew to disseminate general safety information to passengers. Aircraft operators are encouraged to customize the safety instructions for their own operations in order to ensure that required safety information is provided to sight-impaired passengers.

Survival Kit - Life Rafts and Slide/Rafts

2012-06-14
CURRENT
ARP1282B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) applies to survival kits to be carried with life rafts or slide/rafts on transport category airplanes flying extended over-water routes and equipped with approved satellite alerting devices (e.g., 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT)), available for deployment after an emergency landing.
Standard

Lavatory Smoke Detectors

2012-05-25
