We all know that we can't block emergency exits. Just wondering if anyone has a reference to the FAR # that states that? Did a search and can't seem to find it. Part 91 operation, mid size aircraft, 9 pax seating.

Oh dear, need to page AvBug our human FAR/AIM... least I think he's human.

§ 91.525 Carriage of cargo.

(a) No pilot in command may permit cargo to be carried in any airplane unless—
(1) It is carried in an approved cargo rack, bin, or compartment installed in the airplane;
(2) It is secured by means approved by the Administrator; or
(3) It is carried in accordance with each of the following:
(i) It is properly secured by a safety belt or other tiedown having enough strength to eliminate the possibility of shifting under all normally anticipated flight and ground conditions.
(ii) It is packaged or covered to avoid possible injury to passengers.
(iii) It does not impose any load on seats or on the floor structure that exceeds the load limitation for those components.
(iv) It is not located in a position that restricts the access to or use of any required emergency or regular exit, or the use of the aisle between the crew and the passenger compartment.
that would cover the ol "lets put it in the lav" too. as the baggage door in back is considered a secondary emergency exit>>>>>>>> thats a good one to copy and paste for future use ............ tks Basil
