This advisory circular (AC) describes an acceptable means for showing compliance with the requirements of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), part 25, § 25.795(c)(3), “Interior design to facilitate searches.” This section requires that the interior design of an airplane incorporate features that will make it more difficult to hide dangerous objects in the airplane or make it easier to find them if they have been brought onboard. The means of compliance described in this document provides guidance to supplement the engineering and operational judgment that must form the basis of any compliance findings relative to whether the interior design deters concealment of dangerous objects (e.g., weapons or explosives) and facilitates a search for them in certain areas of the airplane. The requirements for searching an airplane are not affected by the requirements of § 25.795(c)(3). The design of the airplane will make it easier to search for hidden objects but will not affect the need for, or the diligence of, the search.
