This course focuses on the aircraft cabin environment and related investigation requirements. Attendees will be presented with information to satisfy the requirements for participation in a major investigation assigned to Cabin Safety and Survivability
groups. In addition attendees will become familiar with the design requirements for major transport aircraft with particular focus on survivability considerations. Finally, each attendee will learn the unique requirements for interviewing
survivors and completely documenting the cabin for deficiencies, injuries sustained during the aircraft accident, escape from the aircraft, and survivability in the post-crash environment. This course will include a practical team experience
in reviewing accident data, documenting the cabin interior and analyzing contributing factors for survivability. While the CAI course can be taken without previous investigation experience, it is recommended that a basic aircraft accident
investigation course or experience precede this course so that the attendee will be familiar with fundamental investigation techniques, impact assessment dynamics and systems investigation.
