Aircraft New Tire Standard - Bias and Radial
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) sets forth criteria for the selection and verification processes to be followed in providing tires that will be suitable for intended use on civil aircraft. This document encompasses new and requalified radial and bias aircraft tires.
Rationale: AS4833 is the industry document supporting TSO C62e. This industry standard applies to both tubeless and tube type aircraft tires. For tube type tires, the diffusion performance capability of the assembly is controlled by the inner tube and not the tire. Since this standard defines the minimum performance capabilities of the tire, and not the inner tube, the diffusion performance threshold defined is only applicable to tubeless tires. It is, therefore, necessary to clarify this standard and to address diffusion for tube type tires under 5.2 and 5.3.10. In addition, 8.3.4 is modified to address incorrect references to other sections within the document.
