Aircraft Seat Design Guidance and Clarifications
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) documents a common understanding of terms, compliance issues, and design criteria to facilitate certification of seat installations specific to Part 25 aircraft. This ARP provides general guidance for seats to be installed in Part 23 aircraft and Parts 27 and 29 rotorcraft and does not specify specific designs or design methods for such certification.
The change in this revision represents the latest agreement obtained by the SAE SEAT Committee to include the latest industry needs (limitation to one standard literature pocket, adding object entrapment, under seat baggage definition, adding details for tamper-evident device, e.g., Lifevest storage location) including consideration of current regulatory standards and guidance. It includes a harmonization with AS8049 and ARP6909 as well as some improvements for the wording and conversion errors.
