The health and safety implications and protective measures established by AFM 71-4 for the use of dry ice as a refrigerant in-flight were critically examined. In-flight and ground level sublimation data and resultant aircraft CO2 levels were obtained. A mandatory precautionary ventilation procedure, which is not presently included in the existing manual, was recommended to protect passengers and crew from excessive exposure to CO2.
