Cabin Safety Research Team
Our Research Focus
The Cabin Safety Research Team conducts research studies and tests pertaining to
the emergency evacuation of aircraft and water survival. Analyses of the data resulting
from these activities are then disseminated through reports and by participation in
scientific/technical meetings. This team studies emergency situations to determine
adequacy of survival equipment and procedures. Research is sponsored by both the FAA
Aircraft Certification Service and the FAA Flight Standards Service.
