pressurized aircraft

An aircraft in which the cabin and baggage areas are sealed off and pressurized with air from a cabin supercharger or the compressor section of a gas turbine engine. The cabin is pressurized to a pressure that compares with an altitude of 6000 to 8000 ft. The occupants of the aircraft are comfortable at this pressure. See pressure capsule.
