What is Your Aircraft Interior Made Of?

Dave UtschDoes your aircraft interior pass FAA burn requirements? Has your aircraft interior been fabricated from normal upholstery supplies? By using these non-compliant materials the safety of your passengers is put at risk. In accordance with FARs, all materials used to fabricate your interior must have proper burn testing documentation. Questionable materials being used would more than likely be caught on a pre-buy inspection and would lessen the value of your aircraft at time of resale. Using certified materials allows traceability should an incident ever occur.

Please make sure to ask your provider for the appropriate safety and FAA burn testing documentation next time you decide to replace your interiors.
