This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides information demonstrating the need for establishing design and performance standards for aircraft crash axes.
The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to provide recommendations which will lead to the standardization of passageway door operation in all transport aircraft, by providing in the design, features which will result in minimum exit passage blockage and jamming.
This Aerospace Recommended Practice provides design and installation criteria intended to enhance overall safety by mitigating exposure of cabin crew and passengers to risks from: a. Routine use of galley systems. b. Galley components or equipment becoming dislodged under routine or abnormal operating conditions and under survivable crash or ditching conditions. c. Malfunctions of, or defects in, a galley system or associated galley equipment. NOTE: It is not the purpose of this Aerospace Recommended Practice to specify the specific designs or design methods to be followed in the accomplishment of stated objectives.

The aging of the world population, and call for greater equality in access to public environments has led to an increase in design for persons with reduced mobility (PRM). There are numerous physical and operational constraints and parameters to overcome when designing a successful and marketable PRM environment. Each program evaluates what is to be considered reasonable based on these guidelines (cost, weight, manufacturability, airframe curvature, footprint required, regulations, and usability). However, there are other less tangible parameters to address. For example, what level of dignity or level of privacy does the PRM environment allow? Does the design require additional assistance to access, or can those who are able make independent use of the environment? Most aircraft manufacturers and design entities have recognized the need to improve accessibility aboard single aisle commercial aircraft (Airbus 320 family, Boeing 737, Embraer 190, Bombardier CSERIES). Current efforts are a step in the right direction, but significant effort and continued improvement is required to accommodate the mobility impaired segment of our travelling public.
The scope of this Vertical Flight document is limited to human behavioral technologies associated with design and/or implementation of Enhanced Synthetic Vision Systems (ESVS) in vertical flight aircraft. Any overlap into logic problems or hardware/software design shall be considered to be incidental to the human factors issues. Where the performance characteristics of specific technologies are relevant they will be identified, and where performance criteria are relevant to specific intended functions/use they will be identified. From a regulatory view, intended function (Full Flight Guidance or Information/Situation Awareness support) has a tremendous effect upon the design of an ESV System. However from a Human Engineering standpoint, the information on display must be discernible and comprehensible to the human operator in both cases and differences may be primarily in information content (required to support a specific task). The document is independent of candidate technologies and concentrates on human interface criteria.
At the Frankfurt IAA International Motor Show on Sept. 10, Continental and IBM announced an agreement to collaborate on fully connected mobile vehicle solutions for car manufacturers around the world.
Operators see bright screens in their future HMIs borrow from tablets, phones to help operators perform a broad range of tasks Small engine landscape Kubota engineers developed new small-displacement engines that adopt a common-rail system while optimizing the combustion system and injection characteristics. Sensitive to safety A growing number of digital sensors are among the tools being used to make sure failures are rare and injuries are even more infrequent.
TRW Automotive’s new anchor seatbelt pretensioner in a rotary configuration features a lightweight design and compact packaging for easy integration in vehicle interiors.
“With the wave of a hand” may move from magicians’ banter to car salesman’s description within a few years. Many automakers and suppliers are racing to devise gesture recognition that lets drivers manage complex functions without being distracted.
Radar is expected to expand beyond its current role as a forward-looking sensor on luxury vehicles to a mainstream offering that also scans sides and possibly the rear of the vehicle. Freescale Semiconductor is hoping to cash in on this potential growth market with a specialized chipset that it says will lower pricing, simplify the design cycle, and save as much as 40% in board space.

The scope of this document is to provide recommended practices for the development and implememtation of training programs for the issuance of a Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL). The recommended practices contained within this documernt are intended primarily for the guidance of passenger and cargo air carriers, and training providers.
