This advisory circular (AC) describes an acceptable means for showing compliance with the requirements of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), part 25, § 25.795(c), “Least risk bomb location.” This section requires that a location on the airplane be designed where an explosive or incendiary device may be placed to protect flight critical structures and systems from damage in case of detonation. The means of compliance described in this document provide guidance to supplement the engineering and operational judgment that must form the basis of any compliance findings relative to the design of a Least Risk Bomb Location on an airplane.
