1.7Installed Equipment

Most large transport aircraft are designed and certified with a significant amount of redundancy in their systems, such that the minimum standards of airworthiness are satisfied by a substantial margin.

Many of these aircraft also have installed instruments and equipment that are not required for safe operation under all operating conditions, e.g., instrument lighting in day VMC. Other equipment, such as entertainment systems or galley equipment, may be installed for passenger convenience.
