Organization: SAE
Publication Date: 1 November 2000
Status: active
Page Count: 16
scope:

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines minimum performance standards and related qualification criteria for add-on child restraint systems (CRS) which provide protection for small children in passenger seats of transport category airplanes. The AS is not intended to provide design criteria that could be met only by an aircraft-specific CRS. The goal of this standard is to achieve child-occupant protection by specifying a dynamic test method and evaluation criteria for the performance of CRS under emergency landing conditions.

Purpose:

The methods presented in this AS are designed to assure that CRS will provide adequate security and safety for their occupants. This will enable proper restraint of children in the aircraft environment. This AS defines a test procedure, interpretation of the results, and pass/fail criteria.

Applicability:

This AS addresses the performance criteria for add-on type CRS when used in transport category airplane passenger seats, certificated under 14 CFR Part 25, which have lap belts as the only means of occupant restraint. These criteria do not replace or supersede existing criteria for child restraint devices certified for compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213 (FMVSS-213), which is published in 49 CFR 571.213. This AS does not redefine or supersede applicable Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for CRS allowed for use on airplanes.
