Chapter 2 Aircraft Equipment and Maintenance                                                            351 DM 2.1

2.1       Purpose. This chapter prescribes minimum aircraft equipment and maintenance standards for all
activities within the Department of the Interior (DOI). This applies to DOI fleet aircraft, commercial aviation
operations, and privately-owned aircraft operated on official business.

2.2     Equipment. Aircraft, engines and equipment shall be operated within the limitations specified by
the manufacturer. The following equipment is in addition to, or further defines, 14 CFR 91 and/or 135
requirement for the flight to be conducted, and the aircraft's certification equipment requirements:

        A.       Fire Extinguishers. The fire extinguisher(s) as required by 14 CFR 135 shall be a hand-
held bottle, minimum 1.5 pound capacity, containing Class B and C extinguishing agents, and mounted
accessible to the flight crew.

         B.      VHF-AM Aeronautical Transceiver. All point-to-point 14 CFR 135 aircraft shall have, as a
minimum, the communications capability required by the FAA for operation as a 14 CFR 135 certificate
holder. If the point-to-point flight is conducted by other than a 14 CFR 135 certificate holder (e.g. approved
cooperator aircraft), communication capability shall, as a minimum, enable flight following. Aircraft flying
special use missions and all DOI owned or operated aircraft shall have a minimum of one 720-channel VHF-
AM Aeronautical Transceiver installed, operating in the 118.000 MHz to 135.975 MHz in 25 kHz channel
increments, and have a minimum of five watts carrier power output.

         C.       Floats. Single-engine helicopters and single-engine airplanes operated beyond power-off
gliding distance of shore shall be float-equipped except where established traffic flow requires aircraft to
operate beyond gliding distance to shore during takeoffs and landings. Multiengine aircraft operated at a
weight that will allow it to climb, with the critical engine inoperative, at least 50 feet per minute, at an altitude
of 1,000 feet above the surface may be operated over water without floats. DOI fleet land aircraft may be
repositioned (ferried) with only flight crewmembers on board without the required floats.

       D.      Emergency Equipment for Overwater Flights.                  For overwater flights the emergency
equipment in ALSE Handbook, chapter 3 is required.

        E.       Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT). Details are contained in ALSE Handbook.

        F.       Seat Belts and Shoulder Harness. Details are contained in ALSE Handbook.

        G.       Helicopter Flight Time Recording Devices. A flight recording meter reading in hours and
tenths and activated by an engine or transmission oil pressure switch wired in series with a collective switch,
or equivalent system, shall be required for recording flight time in helicopters.

         H.       Animal Tracking Antennas. All animal tracking antenna installations shall meet FAA
requirements. Animal tracking antennas mounted on high performance aircraft (cruise speed greater than
180 knots and/or lacking wing struts) shall have a FAA certificated designated engineering representative
(DER) approval. This approval will be accomplished to determine location of mounting antennas and to
establish flight profile in all aspects of flight including climb, cruise, high altitude, descent, and flights into
instrument meteorological conditions. The antennas must also be visible to the flight crew, either by direct
vision or through mirrors mounted to provide an undistorted view of the installation. A structural and
vibration analysis must be accomplished to determine the levels of stress and vibration when the antennas
are installed. This approval will not necessarily meet the needs for a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC);
however, it will establish an engineering background for safety.

         I.     Propeller Arc Markings. Float equipped fleet aircraft will have propeller arc warning
stripes conspicuously marked on each float.

2.3     Special Use. The following are additional requirements for special use activities.

        A.      Animal Capture, Eradication and Tagging. Special equipment requirements for animal
gathering, capturing, eradication, and tagging are contained in the AMD Aerial Capture, Eradication and
Tagging of Animals (ACETA) Handbook.

         B.      Firefighting Aircraft Markings. Firefighting aircraft shall have high visibility markings or 3-
point strobe and pulse landing light system. The Leadplane Guide will become policy when issued.

         C.      Aerial Delivery. Airtankers, helitankers, smokejumpers, and air-to-ground aerial delivery
aircraft and equipment shall be approved by AMD in conjunction with the appropriate board criteria
(Interagency Airtanker Board/Smokejumper Aircraft Screening and Evaluation Board).

       D.        Intercom System. An intercom system capable of serving the pilot and observer
compatible with required protection headgear shall be required.

        G.      Survival Kits. A survival kit is required in accordance with ALSE Handbook.

        H.       Smokejumper Restraint Benches. The use of the smokejumper restraint benches
(Simula seats) is limited to smokejumping missions only, regardless of aircraft certification. Smokejumpers
are required to wear their protective suits and helmets for take-off and landing when seated on the benches
during smokejumper retrieval operations. The benches will be removed and replaced with conventional
forward-facing (or rear-facing) passenger seats when a smokejumper aircraft is used to transport passen-
gers.
