4. Special Terms

Term Definition
Interference Fit Mechanical pressure is required
for assembly and once assembled it
is not likely to be disassembled.
Transition Fit Only a light manual pressure is
(Close Tolerance) necessary to as
semble the parts. It is applicable
for detachable parts and locating
parts but not for moving parts.
Clearance Fit No manual pressure is required.
Applicable for different types of
parts.
VTX O (Refer to Figure 2 and Figure 5) A plane vertical to the fuselage
contour measured from a point 1814
mm (71.417 in.) in front of STA/
FR80. If the letter code is fol
lowed by a number, it denotes the
distance measured from VTX O.
VTZ O (Refer to Figure 2 and Figure 5) A plane horizontal to the fuselage
contour measured from a point 2820
mm (111.024 in.) above FD. If the
letter code is followed by a num
ber, it denotes the distance mea
sured from VTZ O.
XO (Refer to Figure 4) The zero point of the theoretical
trihedron, in which the aircraft
must be contained.
Operating Limits Operating limits are defined as
the limits for aircraft operation
with a damage beyond allowable
damage. Example of acceptable air
plane operation: Repair before 50
flight hours at the latest.
Circumferential Parallel to the frames.
Longitudinal Parallel to the stringers.
