West Star Aviation has gained two new STCs for modifications to the Hawker airframe. The upgrades can be made at the company’s four Textron Aviation-approved service centres.
“The first is our popular Lavatory Waste Drain Valve modification. We’ve installed around 20 of these now via FAA Form 337 Field Approvals and the FAA asked us to get an STC for this,” said Kendall Kreiling, Hawker programme manager. “The other is a new concept STC that replaces the Refuel Panel magnetic valve position indicators (doll’s eyes) with LED light assemblies. The OEM indicators have become difficult to obtain in either new or serviceable as removed condition, so this STC provides operators with a modern solution at very favourable pricing.”
