Single Failure Concept

The objective of this design concept is to permit the airplane to continue safe flight and landing after any single failure. Protection from multiple malfunctions or failures should be provided when the first malfunction or failures would not be detected during normal operations of the airplane, which includes preflight checks, or if the first malfunction or failure would inevitably cause other malfunctions or failures.
