    Does anyone know if the same rules apply for landing sizes on a space saver as to a regular flight. i.e does the landing have to be as deep as the width of the stairs

    Cheers

    That's not to say you couldn't try twisting the arm of your inspector a little, if it's reasonable and justifiable like!!!!:cool: The regs aren't cast in stone you know! :LOL:

    have done just that,spoke today and we agreed to comprimise at 600 mm for an 800mm wide alternating tread stair, he did say they do actually like to err on the side of caution for alternating treads. He would have been happy for a 400mm landing on a conventional flight , but did concede that 600 would be ok as we could have reduced the stairwidth to that anyway
