ATSB studies flight safety implications of hardened cockpit security doors
4 January 2007

In Australia reports were received from a number of aircraft operators regarding flight safety and operational hazards associated with the installation of hardened cockpit security doors in four different aircraft types. An investigation by the ATSB determined that, the development of regulation 4.68 of the Australian Transport Security Regulations 2005 did not take full account of the operational and flight safety requirements of the US FARs, or of other available international policy guidance. The result was a number of unintentional operational and flight safety hazards. (ATSB)
