Question
Are Regular class teams allowed to have their passengers pre-loaded into a module, or a box, or some sort of container and simply install this pre-loaded device into the Regular class aircraft to meet the passenger loading demonstration requirement?
Answer
No.  The tennis ball passengers must be loaded indiviually into the passenger cabin  and unloaded individually from the passenger cabin during the loading demonstration and the unloading demonstration in the amount of time specified for each activity (1 minute). Note that the required luggage must be loaded and unloaded during the same time period as well.



Note that the aircraft must be complete and ready for flight ready after the loading demonstration, with the exception that teams cannot install the flight power battery in the aircraft during the demonstation, for safety reasons.
