One might imagine that testing the cabin air of a jet airliner would be a straightforward exercise.
After all, every now and then the air is contaminated with jet engine oil which can easily get into the bleed air – as a fundamental design flaw.
EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) are presently testing the cabin air of jet airliners as there have been multiple reports that both aircrew and passengers have been made seriously ill following exposure – since 1953. court papers escobedo v Boeing
But to link a cause of ill health with a commercial airliner would be very – inconvenient and costly?
Fume events are supposed to be RARE and therefore difficult to measure? or that’s what the long suffering public and politicians are told.
So why not leave the airliner on the ground for ease of testing and follow the advice of a professional pilot in 2007 – (the last time that airliner cabin air was ‘tested’ by Cranfield University) when he volunteered to fill a BAe 146 cabin with VISIBLE OIL FUMES on the ground for testing?

It is confidently predicted that when EASA publish results of their testing of cabin air in the Autumn of 2016 EASA will state that the air quality is comparable with any office or home.
In other words – don’t worry…
It is recommended that any future discussion on the subject of toxic cabin air is held in a visible oil fume filled confined space to give EASA the experience of being gassed; after all – rare fume events are not officially a risk or dangerous…
The mystery is – how do EASA get away with fraudulent testing?
