Description / Abstract:

This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides criteria for operational characteristics to be considered in the design of individual, inflatable life preservers intended for air transport safety.

The characteristics outlined herein shall apply, where applicable, to the design of individual life preservers to be utilized by four basic classifications of users as follows:

a. Adults

b. Combination adult/child

c. Children

d. Infants/small child

This ARP does not intend to specify nor limit the designer as to particular configuration, material, hardware, attached equipment, or mode of operation of the life preserver except as required to fulfill the intent of the criteria established herein.
