Emergency equipment

English: Emergency equipment

French: Équipement de secours

Another type of “mechanical problem” you may encounter involves the emergency equipment that the airplane carries. As you may expect, an airplane needs to carry sufficient functional emergency equipment such as first aid kits, oxygen bottles, flashlights, fire extinguishers, etc. If you discover that some of this equipment needs replenishing, then they’ll need to come to do so. One way to translate “emergency equipment” is “équipement de secours”.

Équipement (m)=Equipment



Équipement de secours=Emergency equipment
