Seat crashworthiness improvement on large aeroplanes / Dynamic testing 16 g

The aim of the rulemaking task RMT.0069 is to improve the protection of occupants on board large aeroplanes operated in commercial air transportation (CAT) of passengers when they are involved in a survivable accident or emergency landing.

The related Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) 2013-20 proposed, within the new framework introduced by Part-26 and CS-26, to introduce additional airworthiness requirements and specifications for operations in order to make CS 25.562 specifications applicable also to newly produced aircraft of already approved types.

This Comment-Response Document (CRD) contains the comments received on NPA 2013-20 and the responses, or a summary thereof, provided thereto by the Agency.

Based on the comments and responses, the production cut-in was confirmed (however, with a longer transition period) and the relevant Opinion No 02/2016 was developed.

For information, the Agency publishes the draft Decision (CS-26) in this CRD. The proposed amendments to the rule are contained in the related Opinion No 02/2016 published in parallel with this CRD.
