Fliegen (flē gen) v. German To fly. Fliegen Works (flē gen werks) v. German + English To fly intelligently. Our Mission: To provide professional engineering services to the aviation industry in a timely manner.
Fliegen Works is working with Joel Wattum to produce an installation STC kit for the Cessna 170A, 170B, and basic 172 to install Aerocet 2200 twin seaplane floats. Recently we finished up the engineering and flight testing and now have FAA design approval by STC SA02400AK. Joel is accepting orders. FW-JWA658-11 AFMS rev C9.faa
Summary: Design and Manufacturing of redundant servo-tab for installation on DHC-3 Otter for Airworthiness Directive (AD).
Client Request: The DHC-3 Otter had a history of failures in the elevator servo-tab bellcrank. VAZAR agreed to address this issue on their turbine conversion to increase safety of the aircraft and meet the newer 23.629 requirement of flutter free after a single failure. Volant Technica was asked to develop the fix for the servo tab.
Project Summary: Volant Technica, a precursor company to Fliegen Works, worked with the FAA to address this service difficulty and produced the design data, developed loads and a structural test proposal, then DER witnessed the structural test. We also wrote the flight test plan and helped with the issuance of the TIA. The STC is a method of compliance to AD 2004-05-01. Fliegen Works currently holds PMA for fabrication of the redundant servo tab; it includes a 2nd control rod and other modification to fix in-service failure problem.
Results: STC SA01059SE was granted to VAZAR (as American Aeromotives) and is licensed to Fliegen Works for European import auto repair under PMA PQ2380NM.
