Provides guidance on methods of compliance with the requirements of part 25 of the Federal Aviation Regulations pertaining to pressurization, ventilation, and oxygen systems, especially as they pertain to high altitude subsonic flight.

The applicant may elect to follow alternate methods provided that these methods are also found by the FAA to be an acceptable means of complying with the requirements of part 25.
