C295M Cargo CompartmentMultiple storage compartments, hinged door Back to overview
The Rear Ramp Cargo Compartment (RRCM) has been developed to create additional storage space for cargo and luggage onboard the C-295M aircraft when the aircraft is configured for passenger transport - the RRCM essentially turns it into a sort of combi aircraft.
Inside the cargo compartment, cargo nets and dividers are provided for safe stowage of the miscellaneous cargo. Access is arranged through a hinged cargo door, which is assisted with gas springs for convenient operation. The box is installed on the loading ramp and certified for 9G loads.
Being certified as a Class C compartment according to FAR25.857 classification, the cargo compartment contains both smoke-detection with warning to the cockpit as well as fire-suppression equipment which can control any fire that may start within the compartment.
