This document recommends criteria for the control and display of communications and navigation equipment on the flight deck. The equipment includes: a. Communications: Ultra High Frequency (UHF), Very High Frequency (VHF), and High Frequency (HF) Radios, Cabin/Service Interphones, Public Address (PA), Select Call (SELCAL), Call Select (CALSEL), Satellite Communications (SATCOM), b. Navigation: Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR), Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN), Automatic Direction Finder (ADF), Distance Measuring Equipment (DME), Instrument Landing System (ILS), Markers (MKR), Omega, Very Low Frequency (VLF), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS), Inertial Reference Systems (IRS), Satellite Navigation (SATNAV), Low Range Radio Altimeter (LRRA).
This document specifies the requirements for the design objectives for handling qualities applicable to transport aircraft operating in the subsonic, transonic, and supersonic speed range. These objectives are not necessarily applicable to rotor or VTOL aircraft.
This document recommends criteria and requirements for a Final Approach Spacing System (FASS) for transport aircraft. This is an Aerospace Recommended Practice to support the development of a Final Approach Spacing System (FASS) for Approach Spacing for Instrument Approaches (ASIA) operations.
This anex recommends additional design objectives applicable when control laws or control characteristics are modified for the purpose of Flight Envelope Awareness/Protection. While only manually controlled flight is addressed, it is assumed that Autoflfight, Autothrottle, or Autothrust performance is compatible.
This document recommends criteria and requirements for a Flight Management System (FMS) for transport aircraft. The FMS shall provide the functions of Lateral Navigation, Vertical Navigation, and Performance Management and may include Time of Arrival Control. The FMS design shall take Human Factors considerations into account to produce a fault tolerant system.
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides guidance to achieve the optimum integration of new aircraft systems which have an impact on the cockpit layout or crew operating procedures. This process may also be used for modification of existing cockpits.
This document establishes the minimum requirements for seats and restraint systems for the flight deck. Due to limitations that it would place upon basic aircraft design, it is not considered practical for these requirements to apply fully to the observer seat. However, it is emphasized that every effort should be made to provide the observer seat position with an equivalent level of comfort and safety. This document is also intended to make recommendations for flight crew restraint systems. A properly designed crew restraint system will mminimize injury or debilitation during a survivable crash and enable post crash assistance to occupants and escape from the aircraft. Crew member safety is the primary objective, with appropriate provisions for crew comfort taken into consideration. The criteria established herein are designed to standardize restraint systems without hindering the development of new, improved systems.
