Coefficient of Friction Test Method for Aircraft Flooring and Walkway Surfaces

2020-04-21
CURRENT
AS8993
This AS provides suitable test methods for measuring the dynamic coefficient of friction ("slip resistance" or "sliding friction") of aircraft flooring and walkway surfaces in accordance with 14 CFR and EASA CS 25.793 and 25.810(c). § 25.793 specifies the areas which are likely to become wet in service must have slip-resistant properties, and § 25.810 specifies an escape route must be established from each overwing emergency exit that is covered with a slip-resistant surface.

Rationale for Replacement of Pyrotechnic Signaling Devices in Survival Kits on Transport Category Aircraft Life Rafts and Slide-Rafts

2018-06-11
CURRENT
AIR5690A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) identifies the risks and dangers associated with the carriage and use of pyrotechnic signaling devices in transport category aircraft life rafts and slide/rafts, and provides a rationale for allowing the use of alternative non-pyrotechnic devices authorized by FAA/TSO-C168. These devices offer an equivalent level of safety while eliminating flight safety risks, enhancing survivability of aircraft ditching survivors, reducing costs, eliminating dangerous goods transportation and handling issues, and reducing environmental impact of dangerous goods disposal.
