Installation Performance Standard for Airbag Systems Installed in Civil Rotorcraft, Transport Aircraft, and General Aviation Aircraft
This Aerospace Standard defines minimum iinstallation performance standards, qualification requirements, and minimum documentation requirements for passenger and crew occupant inflatable restraint and structure-mounted airbag systems in civil rotorcraft transport aircraft and general aviation aircraft. The goal is to define test and evaluation criteria to demonstrate occupant protection of a seat/occupant/airbag system as required by Federal Aviation Regulations 14 CFR parts 23,25, 27, or 29 and applicable special conditions.
Rationale: There are no current standards for installation performance for aircraft airbag systems. Airbag systems have been in aviation service for a long enough period of time to contain basic and stable technology which is not dynamic in nature.
