This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) contains guidelines and recommendations for subsonic airplane air conditioning systems and components, including requirements, design philosophy, testing and ambient conditions.
The airplane air conditioning system comprises that arrangement of equipment, controls and indicators that supply and distribute air to the occupied compartments for ventilation, pressurization, and temperature and moisture control. The principal features of the system are:
A supply of outside air with independent control valve(s).
A means for heating
A means for cooling (air or vapor cycle units and heat exchangers)
A means for removing excess moisture from the air supply
A ventilation subsystem
A temperature control subsystem
A pressure control subsystem
Other system components for treating cabin air such as filtration and humidification are included, as are the ancillary functions of equipment cooling and cargo compartment conditioning.
The interface with the major associated system, the pneumatic system (Chapter 36 of ATA 100) is at the inlet of the air conditioning shutoff valves. This boundary definition aligns with that in the ATA 100 Specification.
This document provides recommended air conditioning system design practices for subsonic airplanes. This revision has been updated to make the document consistent with current industry standards.

AC-9 Aircraft Environmental Systems Committee
Furthers the advancement of technology related to the research, design, test and utilization of aircraft environmental and anti-icing/deicing systems. Develops and updates standards, recommended practices, and information reports contributing to the quality, economy, and safety of commercial and military aircraft.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
