There have been numerous mentions of HALON being used for engine fire supression systems (as well as cargo hold fire suppression). With the Montreal protocol on the elimination of CFCs, I know that there are a few uses of CFCs that have been specially mentioned as acceptable for the longer term. (As aerosol propellant for asthma medecine for instance). Has HALON received an official exemption from the elimination of CFCs for the use on board aircraft, or will HALON also be replaced on board aircraft ? If so, when ? Are new aircraft such as the 340 or 777 still equipped with HALON or have they begun to use replacements ? Also, is there a list of relatively modern commercial jet aircraft that have fire suppression systems in the cargo hold ?
