Furnishing Group – Civil Aircraft

This group includes the seats, galleys, furnishings, toilets, oxygen system, and paint (see Section 8.6.1). At the conceptual design stage, they are grouped together to obtain the furnishing group.

MfUr = 0.07 to 0.08 x MTOW for large aircraft > 100passengers (8.49) MfUr = 0.06 to 0.07 x MTOW for smaller transport aircraft of

< 100 passengers (8.50)

MfUr = 0.02 to 0.025 x MTOW for unpressurized aircraft (8.51)

8.10.9 Contingency and Miscellaneous – Civil Aircraft

A good designer plans for contingencies; that is:

Mcont = (0.01 to 0.025) x MTOW (8.52)

Miscellaneous items should also be provided for; that is:

Mmisc = 0to1% of MTOW (8.53)

8.10.10 Crew – Civil Aircraft

A civil aircraft crew consists of a flight crew and a cabin crew. Except for very small aircraft, the minimum flight crew is two, with an average of 90 kg per crew member. The minimum number of cabin crew depends on the number of passengers. Opera­tors may employ more than the minimum number, which is listed in Table 8.4.
