Regulations On Aicraft Cabins

Tue Oct 12, 2004 6:59 pm

Hi all,

I am currently working on my final year project on aircraft passenger seats, and I am looking for documents that lists all the Government regulations regarding Aircraft Passenger Cabins, like minimum aisle width, minimum structural strength requirement etc..... I tried to search for them in the FAA and CAA website, but still can't find them yet.

So do anyone know where I can find those regulations ?

Thanks in advance !

For US domestic carriers, don't forget there is more than part 25.
Part 121 is loaded with useful stuff such as 121.215 Cabin Interiors.

look here for more:

Happy trails,

There are good books summing up the main considerations in all the different regulations. Supposedly, you're not content with only flying in the US. The JAR document was just renamed

Certification Specification.

On the topic of regulations, does anyone have a link to the Australian and New Zealand regulations online? Or the regs for any Asian countries?

Cheers,
Fred

Hi,

Thanks for your advices !!

FredT, I was browsing through different aviation authorities, and came across the Australian and New Zealand authorities. But I am not sure whether they are exactly what you want :

Australia Civil Aviation Safety Authority:
http://www.casa.gov.au/index.htm
and their section about rules and regulations:
http://www.casa.gov.au/avreg/rules/index.htm

Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand:
http://www.caa.govt.nz/

Hope it helps !

James
