FAA/EASA Certification, Methods of Compliance for 29.801 Ditching

  • Professional Development
  • C1970
Published 2019-10-08

Certifying an aircraft, part or appliance can be a challenge.  The FAA/EASA procedures can be frustrating and a maze of rules, policy and guidance. Understanding the process and procedures can provide you with a competitive edge and reduce your time obtaining a Certification approval. This course provides an overview of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) policies, guidelines and requirements leading to Type and Supplemental Type airworthiness approvals. This course has a focus on 29.801 Ditching and EASA 29.802 Emergency Flotation.

Landing Area/Landing Gear Compatibility - A Brief History of SAE/Corps of Engineers Cooperation

A-5 Aerospace Landing Gear Systems Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AIR4243A
  • Current
Published 2014-12-01 by SAE International in United States
This document discusses the work done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Waterways Experiment Station (WES) in support of SAE A-5 Committee activity on Aerospace Landing Gear Systems. It is an example of how seemingly unrelated disciplines can be combined effectively for the eventual benefit of the overall aircraft system, where that system includes the total airfield environment in which the aircraft must operate. In summary, this AIR documents the history of aircraft flotation analysis as it involves WES and the SAE.

Biological Degradation of Spent De-Icing Fluids in a Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant – Experiences and Challenges

Aquateam AS-Lars J. Hem, Bjørn Rusten
Oslo Airport Gardermoen-Jostein Skjefstad
Published 2007-09-24 by SAE International in United States
Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL) is situated over a ground water reservoir, and collection and handling of spent de-icing fluids is therefore of major importance. OSL have chosen to handle low- and medium strength spent fluids in cooperation with a nearby municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Medium strength fluid is used as a carbon source for nitrogen removal, and thus used as a resource. Low strength fluid is pre-treated in an aerobic biofilm reactor before it is routed to the plant inlet.Prior to the choice of solution for disposal of the fluids, investigations were performed in laboratory and pilot scale. The efficiency of the fluid as a carbon source for denitrification was studied in parallel with ethanol and methanol as well documented carbon sources. The achieved denitrification rates were comparable with those achieved with methanol, while the necessary addition of carbon source was slightly higher for spent de-icing fluid than for methanol. The treatment plant has been operating for almost 9 years, with operational results confirming the spent de-icing fluid to be appropriate as a carbon…

A Hypothetical Tyre Size to improve Tyre Flotation on Sandy Soil Using Artificial Neural Networks Technique

Cairo University, Egypt-Abdel Aziz M. El-Bassiouni

Published 2007-08-05 by SAE International in United States
The main aim of this paper is to optimize pneumatic tyre parameters related that improve tyre flotation and performance on sandy soils. Tyre flotation pressure is the pressure of inflation that makes tyre flotation maximum such that it deforms more than it sinks in the soil. A second aim is to predict the tyre flotation pressure on dry sandy soil by using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) Technique. A third aim is to predict a new tyre size that improves flotation on dry sand by using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) Technique.Experimental investigation has been carried out on three tubeless tyre of sizes (225/75R15, 235/70R15 and 255/60R15) inflated each with four inflation pressures (50, 100, 150 and 200 kPa) on three dry sand with three densities (Loose, Medium, and High). The investigation aimed at determines the tyre deflection-load, sinkage-load relationships were measured and the tyre flotation pressure.The artificial neural network (in MATLAB program) simulating the tyre deflection and sinkage on dry sand was used for all tyre and soil parameters. The artificial neural network demonstrated good generalization…
