The proposed policy provides a method of demonstrating compliance with the lumbar load criteria of § 25.562(c)(2). It is based on an FAA funded research project that developed a component test methodology for demonstrating that a replacement bottom cushion would not produce a higher lumbar load than a certificated bottom cushion for a seat certificated to § 25.562(c)(2). The proposed method provides a simplified means of demonstrating compliance with § 25.562(c)(2) and will streamline the seat certification process by reducing the costs and time associated with seat certification.Start Signature
