View Full Version : Aircrew Oxygen Requirements - Where to find?

28th May 2006, 17:05
Just trying to find a document on Aircrew Oxygen Requirements - busy looking for the official document rather than just facts and figures.

I have tried the AIP in the ENR section but cannot find - or am I just not looking hard enough!

Thanks in Advance.

ICAO Annex 6, parts II and III and appendix 5.

I think that the UK interpretation of that is section 45 of the ANO.

JAR–OPS 1.385 Use of supplemental
A commander shall ensure that flight crew
members engaged in performing duties essential to
the safe operation of an aeroplane in flight use
supplemental oxygen continuously whenever cabin
altitude exceeds 10 000 ft for a period in excess of
30 minutes and whenever the cabin altitude exceeds
13 000 ft.

ANO article 54 (7) (c) during any period when the aircraft is flying above flight level 100 oxygen is used
by all the flight crew of the aircraft.

The above applies to public transport flights. I don't know of any mandatory requirements for private flights.

JARs (http://www.jaa.nl/publications/section1.html) - You want JAR-OPS 1

ICAO ANNEX 6 Part 1 (http://dcaa.slv.dk:8000/icaodocs/Annex%2006%20-%20Operation%20of%20Aircraft/Part%201-%20International%20Commercial%20Air%20Transport%20-%20Aeroplanes,%20AMDT%2029.pdf) In particular, 4.3.8, 4.4.5 and 6.7. If you go to the directory here (http://dcaa.slv.dk:8000/icaodocs/) you will be able to mooch around and find Ghengis' references as well.
