Project Name: Aerocet Floats Installation on a DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver Airplane
Client: Aerocet Inc.
Client Request: To receive a certification plan that would allow them to get an STC for installing Aerocet 5850 floats on a DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver airplane.
Project Summary: The client designed new composite floats for installation on the DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver airplane. They asked Fliegen Works to develop a certification plan and checklist to get this installation approved by the FAA. Fliegen Works also performed flight and landing structural loads analysis on the float attachments in order to certify the mounting of the new floats.
Results: Fliegen Works developed a compliance plan and checklist and developed a Maintenance Manual (MM), Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA), and an Illustrated Parts Catalog (IPC). The installation has been approved for an STC.
