Abstract:

Pursuant to disagreements between the U.S. Public Health Service and elements of the U.S. aircraft and airline industry, the FAA undertook a study to assess alleged hazards of exposing aircraft and passengerscrew to DDVP vapor for insecticidal purposes on international flights. The study criteria focused on the effects of multiple exposure to the proposed disinsection environment under representative flight conditions. Particular relationships considered were 1 human toxicology at cabin altitude, 2 flammability characteristics of cabin decorative materials, 3 performance of electronicavionic equipment, and 4 corrosion of airframe components.
