(2) the extinguisher will have a "quick release" function to enable easy removal from its mount.
The standard then finished with requirements for Identification and Markings:
(1) The hand-held fire extinguisher shall be identified and marked with the applicable specifications as determined by the approving authority per paragraph (b).
(2) A stowage compartment or stowage container that contains a hand-held fire extinguisher shall be clearly marked as to its contents.”
So as long as your installed handheld fire extinguisher meets one of those stated standards and is mounted as described then it will meet the CAR requirements.
Maintenance References For Owners
There are literally hundreds of excellent publications, videos and references for owning your own aircraft. This is a very short list of just a few of the more useful publications and websites.
The Standard Aircraft Handbook, published by Tab Aero Books, edited by Larry Reithmaier ISBN 0-8306-8634-7. An excellent pocket reference that outlines how to select and use aircraft hardware, materials and techniques. It is widely available from outlets such as Chapters in Canada.
The FAA publication AC 43.13-1B Acceptable Methods, Techniques and Practices, Aircraft Inspection and Repair has an entire chapter on weight and balance (Chapter 10) and is the standard reference on the subject. It also gives complete information on all accepted practices for all aircraft. An invaluable reference to have! The good news is that you can download the entire book for free in adobe Acrobat format from http://www.faa.gov/regulations_policies/advisory_circulars/index.cfm/go/docume nt.information/documentid/99861 . It is also widely available for sale in a paper version. One such source of the paper version is Aircraft Spruce and Specialty.
Your aircraft’s Parts Manual – this should be available from the manufacturer, the current aircraft parts supplier (if the manufacturer isn’t around anymore) or the aircraft type club if one exists for the aircraft type. COPA Guide to Certified Aircraft 49
