SCOPE OF REQUIREMENTS
The Defence Standard includes within its scope, requirements and recommendations which arise from the operational function of Service Aeroplanes. It cowers the following main categories of requirements:
The comfort and safety of the crew, guidance being given in such matters as the placing of controls and seats, the pilot's view and other allied subjects.
The basic considerations of design, strength and stiffness which are intended to ensure that the aeroplane can carry out its duties safely and with an acceptably low risk of structural failure.
The aerodynamic and flying qualities of the aeroplane.
The installation of engines, of fuel and oil systems and of the various other aeroplane services.
The reliability and maintainability of the aeroplane in order to ensure efficient operation and a reasonable service life.
The flight tests to be made by the contractor prior to delivery, for acceptance trials, of a new type or converted aeroplane to an Experimental Establishment.
Reference Pages contain a list of publications which give useful amplification or explanation of the requirements and recommendations of a Chapter and its Leaflets or which promulgate additional requirements or information of which the designer should be aware.
