AAR's Nordisk Announces Lightest Weight Cargo Container Now Has Advanced Fire Resistance

The new FRC, which passed testing performed at Intertek, an independent third-party testing facility in San Antonio, Texas, is a main deck container designated with the airline industry code AAD, referring to its size and shape, which is over 485 cubic feet. Testing strictly measured fire containment, not blast resistance. Depending on the aircraft's size, anywhere from 24 to 30 FRCs could fit inside the aircraft.

The National Safety Transportation Board, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Defense have been encouraging groups such as SAE International, a global association of engineers and technical experts in aerospace and other industries, as well as ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, to help develop fire-resistant containers for aircraft.

For more than 25 years, AAR subsidiary Nordisk has collaborated with DuPont on safety advancements for air cargo containers. The FRC is the latest in a series of innovations that have included Hardened Unit Load Devices (HULDs), developed in the aftermath of the Pan Am explosion over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988.
