Abstract:

A commercially available, purified water packed in PET bottles has been tested for suitability as an emergency drinking water for ADF aircraft. The water meets chemical and organoleptic requirements of the ADF, and is preferred to the current product on the basis of taste and the lower permeability of the package to water. The product failed to meet the ADFs stringent microbiological specifications. Further testing is required to determine the ability of the package to withstand the forces of ejection, and the high temperatures within the cockpit of aircraft parked in the sun in tropical areas of Australia. Potable water, Emergency water, Survival water, Drinking water.
