Tyre pressure monitoring system

Improper tyre pressure, in particular underinflation, remains a major contributing factor to tyre- and wheelfailure-related accidents or incidents. These kinds of occurrences continue to occur regularly despite a number of regulatory changes established over the last 40 years.

It is widely recognised that ensuring correct aircraft tyre inflation pressure is the most important factor for safe tyre operations.

The specific objective of this rulemaking task is to propose a regulatory change to ensure that the tyres’ inflation pressures of large aeroplanes remain within the pressure specifications defined by the aircraft manufacturer.
