Description / Abstract:

This document establishes dimensional, structural and environmental requirements for two types of interline pallets. Type II covers NAS 3610 code sizes and Type III covers other sizes not currently included in NAS 3610.

PURPOSE: This Aerospace Standard establishes minimum requirements for pallets used to transport cargo in aircraft equipped with NAS 3610 restraint systems, except as noted and using nets meeting the requirements of AS 1492. The minimum essential criteria are identified by the use of the word "shall" Recommended criteria are identified by the key word "should" and while not mandatory are considered to be of primary importance in providing serviceable, economical, and practical air transport pallets. Deviation from the recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, and thorough service evaluation have shown alternate methods to be satisfactory.
