Performance Standard for Seats in Civil Rotorcraft, Transport Aircraft, and General Aviation Aircraft
- Aerospace Standard
Published September 01, 1997 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines minimum performance standards, qualification requirements, and minimum documentation requirements for passenger and crew seats in civil rotorcraft, transport aircraft, and general aviation aircraft. The goal is to achieve comfort, durability, and occupant protection under normal operational loads and to define test and evaluation criteria to demonstrate occupant protection when a seat/occupant/restraint system is subjected to statically applied ultimate loads and to dynamic impact test conditions set forth in the applicable Federal Regulations 14 CFR Part 23, Part 25, Part 27, or Part 29.
This document also provides guidance for design by enumerating certain design goals to enhance comfort, serviceability, and safety. Guidance for test procedures, measurements, equipment, and interpretation of results is presented to promote uniform techniques and to achieve acceptable data.
While this document addresses system performance, responsibility for the seating system is divided between the seat supplier and the installation applicant. The seat supplier's responsibility consists of meeting all the seat system performance requirements and obtaining and supplying to the installation applicant all the data prescribed by this document. The installation applicant has the ultimate system responsibility in assuring that all requirements for safe seat installation have been met.

The Aerospace Council of SAE established the Aircraft Seat Committee (SEAT) in 1997 to address technical issues related to the design and/or performance of aircraft seating systems. The seating systems include crew, flight attendants, and passenger seats installed in Civil Rotorcraft, Transport Aircraft, and General Aviation Aircraft.A list of the technical reports developed by the SEAT Committee can be obtained by searching on 'aircraft seat' and selecting 'standards', from the SAE Home Page.

* 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.
