Passenger safety and very large transportation aircraft

Passenger safety and very large transportation aircraft Future very large transport aircraft (VLTA) represents an exciting and important development in civil aviation. The emergency evacuation of VLTAs in the event of a survivable crash poses a challenge for aircraft manufacturers and certification authorities. The information which has been gained from previous evacuation research has been re‐evaluated for VLTA. This included consideration of the aircraft configuration, crew factors and passenger issues. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing
