Prior to receiving FAA certification, Field Aviation's LRF modification had previously been granted STC's from both Transport Canada (TC) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). It has now achieved approval from all three major airworthiness authorities.
The FAA STC is applicable to all Classic Dash 8 series 100/200/300 aircraft currently type approved by the FAA, TC and EASA regardless of serial number, model and weight. Field Aviation has successfully, without the requirement for an exemption, provided compliance to the new FAA airworthiness authorities standard 25.981 at amendment 25-125 (fuel tank ignition prevention) and has been able to demonstrate full compliance to the current FAA airworthiness standards.
The installation of Field Aviation's LRF modification will provide an additional 686 US gallons or approximately 4600 pounds of fuel. The combination of standard tanks plus the LRF modification will increase the Dash 8's fuel capacity to approximately 10,200 pounds and provide a significant increase in available flight time depending on altitude and power settings.
As a modification centre of excellence, Field Aviation is recognized internationally for its design, engineering, integration and certification of kits and modifications designed to enhance the operational utilization of a wide range of commercial aircraft including the Bombardier Classic Dash 8 series.
