Abstract:

The Aircraft Crashworthiness Program Plan is designed to reduce or prevent aircraft occupants from incurring serious or fatal injuries in a survivable crash impact accident by incorporating crashworthy design features into the initial stages of fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft development. It describes a 5-year development program for both airplanes and rotorcraft. It identifies five major subprogram areas for study and analysis to accomplish the programs goals 1 Airframes 2 Cabin safety 3 Fuel system protection 4 Emergency evacuation system and 5 Standards, criteria, and procedures. The plan emphasizes use of available background data development of analytical techniques validation of analytical techniques validation of data to determine feasibilityacceptability and transmittal of appropriate data for consideration as the basis for regulation, standards, etc. The Federal Aviation Administration groups, other Government agenciesdepartments and industry organizations participating in this effort are identified. Program schedule with milestones is presented. Program management and funding requirements are also identified.
