PROPOSED rules by the FAA revise current requirements for the passenger emergency exits of transport category aircraft as well as adopt two new exit types into the regulations. It is also proposed to reduce the maximum inflation time of an escape slide to reflect the current state‐of‐the‐art. These considerations result from recommendations made by a subgroup of the FAA's Design and Certification Group and follow on amendments to Part 23 FAR.
