Arrow Cabin Decompression

Aircraft have cabin air systems that control pressurization, airflow, air filtration, and temperature. The purpose of these systems is to provide a safe and comfortable cabin environment, and to protect all cabin occupants from the physiological risks of high altitudes. Modern aircraft are now operating at increasingly high altitudes. This increases the physiological risks that are associated with decompression. In the case of decompression, there is a risk that not enough oxygen will be supplied to the body. This condition, hypoxia, is the greatest threat to both crewmembers and passengers.

A recently published accident report, involving a case of slow decompression, suggested that the overall aviation industry does not provide sufficient training to flight crew and cabin crew on the identification and effective management of decompression. The objectives of this Flight Operations Briefing Note are, therefore, to:

Review the different types of decompression

Enhance cabin and flight crew awareness of the importance of rapidly taking appropriate actions to successfully manage decompression.
