AAY military containerFire Containment Container (FCC) Back to overview
When transporting troopers and cargo in one hold, a conflict in air cargo regulations may occur. Regulation for transport of passengers vastly differs compared to the requirements for transport of cargo in general, and on fire retardancy in more specific.
Cargo and passengers need to be separated and whereas such typically occurs in different cargo holds, in certain aircraft configurations this is simply not feasible or cost effective.
Taking flight safety serious and adopting FAA standards, the Spanish Air Force approached VRR to take part in discussions regarding Boeing 707 combi transport. Building crewrest containers for Airbus’ A330 and A340 aircraft, our expertise came of excellent use.
Fire containment containers were provided with a fire suppressing system to facilitate combi transport and to provide a safer transport method of e.g. lithium batteries.
