Standard on Aircraft Maintenance



Equip maintenance workers in airports and hangars with the latest fire safety protocols in NFPA 410.

Keep your facility in compliance and your personnel safe. Airport managers, code enforcers, Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), and airline maintenance personnel need today's NFPA 410: Standard on Aircraft Maintenance. This Standard provides comprehensive fire protection criteria for all maintenance activities conducted inside an aircraft hangar including:

  • Aircraft fuel systems
  • Electrical equipment
  • Welding operations
  • Painting of aircraft
  • Ventilation equipment
  • Ground power units

The 2015 NFPA 410 includes new requirements governing portable fire extinguishers.

NFPA 410 ensures workers have appropriate fire protection equipment in the immediate location of aircraft maintenance operations.

  • Updated requirements address the phase-out of Halon portable extinguishers
  • Other changes reflect the new rating system for Class A and Class B portable fire extinguishers

These provisions keep aircraft maintenance operations in accordance with NFPA 10: Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishersand as required by the AHJ for operations such as electrical maintenance, aircraft cleaning, and fuel transfer. (Softbound, 30 pp., 2015)
