This paper briefly outlines the nature of the current crashworthiness requirements contained in the United States airworthiness standards, with primary emphasis on those for fixed-wing airplanes. The authority for and origin of such requirements is traced. Special attention is focused on the recommendations of the Federal Aviation Administration's Task Force for Crashworthiness and Emergency Evacuation. During the past two years this team has studied the subject intensively. An indication is provided of trends for improved means to cope with occupant protection in a survivable crash environment. This includes protection against serious injury in the event of damaging ground impact as well as the rapid, safe evacuation of the airplane's occupants. An indication is also given of areas wherein further regulatory action is proposed to amend the transport category requirements. Also discussed are actions to improve the level of safety of future air-taxi airplanes.
