This document recommends design criteria for the Flight Deck Alerting System. The FAS shall enhance safety of flight by providing early crew recognition of aircraft system or component status or malfunction as well as of crew operational error. The FAS, therefore, relates to aircraft configuration and flight phase as well as the aircraft systems. To fulfill this objective, the FAS must attract the attention of the crew, must state with clarity the nature and location of the problem, and must be highly reliable and thoroughly responsive to the operational requirements and environment. Wherever possible, it should provide guidance as to the corrective action.
This document has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE 5-Year Review policy.

The SAE S-7 Committee was formed to fulfill a need for the air transport industry to monitor itself with respect to uniformity of cockpit design for air transport aircraft.Standardization of the flight deck is becoming increasingly important to both operators and manufacturers. The objective is to design for the operational efficiencies necessary to maintain a competitive and viable air transportation industry. This must be accomplished while maintaining or improving the existing levels of operating efficiencies and safety. The S-7 Committees is committed to serving this purpose. This is an international committee of members representing major aircraft manufacturers, airlines from United States, Europe, and the Far East, as well as equipment designers, manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and other interested parties.
