West Star Aviation has been granted approval for its Falcon 2000 baggage modification STC, enabling the creation of usable baggage space in the aft unpressurized area.
The forward servicing compartment panel enclosure will have a 21.75ft² footprint and 73.5ft³ of usable baggage space.
The installation weight of this modification is 115 lb. West Star says it can accommodate 185-275 lb while still allowing access to all common service and maintenance items, with no additional fire detection or suspension needed.
“This installation provides FAA-approved stowage provisions as it converts existing space into usable and much needed baggage and storage space,” said Rodger Renaud, president and chief operating officer, West Star Aviation.
“It will provide structural restraint for security while still retaining existing aircraft equipment stowage provisions including tow bar, ladder, engine inlet cover tool and the fly away kit.”
The modification is available for more than 500 Falcon 2000 models.
