MAKING GREAT AIRCRAFT BETTER
By providing innovative solutions to the most challenging issues.
NOW AVAILABLE - PEACE OF MIND
Operators have made their concerns clear. They want something to help assure they can continue to enjoy their Eclipse Jet, even in the midst of a changing support environment. Since finding solutions is what we do, we are introducing our newest STC for the Eclipse.
STC SA04458CH creates an Alternative Maintenance Program for the Eclipse 500/550. This program replaces the manufacturer's recommended maintenance program with a new alternative maintenance program, complete with a new Chapter 4 & Chapter 5.
One of the greatest concerns for Eclipse operators is the availability of replacement PhostrEx Fire Extinguisher Canisters, both now and in the future. Currently, these canisters have a mandatory life limit in Chapter 4 (Airworthiness Limitations Section) of the AMM. That means that when the FAA mandated calendar life limit is reached, if there are no replacement Fire Extinguisher Containers available, your aircraft becomes a very expensive paperweight.
The RAS Alternative Maintenance Program for the Eclipse 500/550 provides the flexibility and certainty operators want. The RAS program moves the Fire Extinguisher Replacement from an Airworthiness Limitation with no relief, to a recommended maintenance action. With the RAS STC, operators can address the Fire Extinguishers as they would any other recommended overhaul item. Operators can make the determination on whether they want to want to replace their Fire Extinguisher Canisters at the manufacturers recommended interval, or if based on good judgement and service experience, they want to extend the replacement interval
When others say it can't be done, or it's too difficult, we say bring it on. In fact, finding solutions for the most difficult tasks is where we shine.
Our team is in the final stages of completing a repair process for Eclipse Primary Cabin Outflow Valves. Best of all, our repairs will be about half of the current OEM repair price.
The most asked question by our customers is what's next? We've added an innovative and market changing upgrade to our short term project list.
It's too early to release any details, but stay tuned for updates.
