SAFETY STUDY OF EVACUATIONS OF LARGE, PASSENGER-CARRYING AIRCRAFT

From 1978 to 1991 there were 18 evacuations of large, Canadian-registered, passenger-carrying aircraft. This safety study examines the Canadian experience with respect to the evacuation of passengers from a large aircraft and identifies safety deficiences associated with communications during evacuations, exit operation, passenger preparedness for evacuations, and the presence of fire, smoke, and toxic fumes.
