Abstract : Flammability testing of aircraft blankets was conducted in order to develop a fire performance test method and performance criteria for blankets supplied to commercial aircraft operators. Aircraft blankets were subjected to vertical Bunsen burner testing, 4-ply vertical testing, full-scale match and cigarette testing, and single- and 4-ply horizontal testing. It was found that the 4-ply horizontal test correlates well with the full-scale match tests, produces consistent test results, and realistically evaluates ease of ignition.
