Document Number: AIR5648
Revision Number:
Fuel Versus Oxygen: Evaluations and Considerations
Specific Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) define oxygen system requirements for an in-flight decompression incident. This AIR addresses the oxygen system requirements for a decompression incident that may occur at any point during a long-range flight, with an emphasis for a decompression at the equal time point (ETP). This AIR identifies fuel and oxygen management contingencies, and presents a possible solution for the most efficient, safe, and optimum flight continuation.
