How long does it take to evacuate an aircraft in an emergency?- Jak długo trwa ewakuacja pasażerów z samolotu w sytuacji awaryjnej? 

  1. evacuation slides- rynny ratunkowe/ trapy ewakuacyjne
  2. smoke-filled cabin- wypełniona dymem kabina
  3. _____ on fire- w ogniu/ w płomieniach
  4. blocked emergency exits- zablokowane drzwi bezpieczeństwa
  5. unusable- nienadające się do użytku
  6. infant- niemowlę

Every passenger and crew member, out of their seats and down the evacuation slides, starting from the time the emergency exits open to the time when the cabin is completely empty. In a smoke-filled cabin with the aircraft on fire, and possibly with some of the emergency exits blocked or unusable. Considering there are probably some wheelchair passengers on board, plus solo parents with babies and infants.

How about 90 seconds?

  1. achieve certification- otrzymać certyfikację/ dopuszczenie
  2. compliance- zgodność/ wypełnienie warunków, etc.
  3. perform demonstration- wykonać prezentację/ wykonać próbę, etc.

Because 90 seconds is the time required for an aircraft with more than 44 passengers’ seats to achieve certification.  To demonstrate compliance, an aircraft manufacturer must perform a full-scale evacuation demonstration, in darkness, with half the available exits blocked and with a gender mix as close as possible to that on a typical flight. Crew and passengers don’t know which exits will be blocked and all passengers and crew are expected to be out of the aircraft and on the ground within 90 seconds. If not, the aircraft can’t be certified as a commercial aircraft.

  1. numerous drills – liczne ćwiczenia
  2. rigorous training – rygorystyczne/ wymagające szkolenie
  3. burdened with _____  – obciążony _____ (kimś/ czymś)
  4. get everyone on board safely off – bezpiecznie wyprowadzić wszystkich znajdujących się na pokładzie

It’s the result of numerous drills and rigorous training that many aircraft that are stricken by flames and smoke, just after coming to a halt  on the runway, burdened with passengers who are not in their prime, manage to get everyone on board safely off in something very close to 90 seconds.
