MODUK - DEF STAN 00-970: V1 B1
Design and Airworthiness Requirements for Service Aircraft Volume 1 - Aeroplanes Book 1 (Parts 0 to 3)
|Publication Date:||12 December 1983|
This initial issue of Defence Standard 00-970 Volume 1 replaces AvP970 "Design Requirements for Service Aircraft" Volume 1 (Aeroplanes) and AvP970 Volume 1 Memos.
The opportunity offered by the reprinting of AvP970 as a Defence Standard, with the Memos incorporated in the text, was taken to revise the publication editorially and technically where time and resources allowed. The new Defence Standard 00-970, therefore, represents the start of a major revision (over the next 5 years) of design and airworthiness requirements for Service aircraft. The objectives of the revision in the longer term are:
To provide modern, state of the art, design and airworthiness requirements for military aircraft projects.
To reduce the proliferation of design documentation and to implement relevant aspects of NATO and ASCC Standardisation.
To provide a coherent national view in pursuance of joint European military requirements.
To maximise commonality with civil airworthiness requirements.
To establish a relationship with USA Mil Specs. To pursue the objectives specified in the White Paper (Cmd 8621) - Standards, Quality and International Competitiveness.
A number of Chapters/Leaflets have been reproduced as they were originally issued or amended in the 1960's and some still quote Imperial Units e.g., Chapter 718 Oxygen Installations.
Changes will continue to be introduced into Defence Standard 00-970 under the auspices of the Joint Airworthiness Committee.
