Performance Requirements for Full Face Quick Donning Masks
Purpose of this standard is to provide minimum performance requirements of a Full Face Quick Donning Mask Assembly (FFQDM) with integrated regulator including appropriate stowage facility regarding functionality under conditions of aircraft environments. Function and performance requirements shall take into account varying modes of use and handling during aircraft operation according to operational requirements.
Rationale: Qualification of Full Face Quick Donning Masks is based on variety of subcomponent standards including AS8026, AS8027, AS8031 and appropriate ETSO`s/ TSO`s primarily related to functionalities and performance of subcomponents not taking into account the use of an FFQDM assembly as whole unit. Even though subcomponents are compliant to their specific standard they may not cover the requirements of an FFQDM assembly.
