The general objective of this research study is to enable step-advances in the investigation on the quality of the air on board commercially operated large transport aeroplanes and its potential adverse consequences on crew/passenger health in light of the relevant European legislation on quality of indoor air and professional exposure limits. This will encompass notably:

a) to collect substantive legacy evidence regarding the problem area and to perform a critique of the main conclusions and information that can be derived from such a stock;

b) to develop a comprehensive understanding of the root causes leading to the contamination of the bleed air — notably by oils and hydraulic fluids and their by-products — and of the impact of such contamination on the cockpit/cabin air quality; such a study shall embrace the envelope of routine flight conditions as well as incident conditions involving CAC events;

c) to identify potential safety and/or long/short-term health risks that might stem from such contamination and to estimate their expected consequences;

d) depending on the severity of the risks identified, to identify potential mitigation actions and to assess their fitness for purpose in dealing with the risks identified.
