CAe) provides information and guidance regarding an acceptable means, but not the only means, of compliance with th~ portions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 25.785 and 14 CFR 121.311, which deal with flight attendant seats. This material is for guidance purposes; it is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. The guidelines incorporated in this AC are intended to address the adequacy of new designs and are not intended to require that in·service airplanes be modified solely for the purpose of meeting them. Voluntary modifications to existing cabins are not required to meet the new criteria but modifiers should incorporate them to the extent practical considering the scope and intent of the voluntary modification.
