Final EASA STC approval has been granted to Skandia for an acoustic soundproofing kit designed for all variants of the Dassault Falcon 900.
This is the fifth EASA STC approval awarded to Skandia for a soundproofing acoustic solution. Skandia designs and engineers soundproofing enhancements for aircraft of all sizes and categories; up to heavy VVIP jets exceeding 100,000 lb.
Manufactured using Skandia-engineered soundproofing materials, the acoustic system is designed to offer Falcon 900 operators and passengers reduced cabin noise and increased comfort in all phases of flight.
In final testing, an overall sound reduction of 4dB (SIL) was achieved, while some cabin seating areas achieved a noise reduction of approximately 6dB (SIL).
Skandia said installation of the kit is made simple and straightforward by an intuitive kitting process for materials, as well as installation instructions and guidelines.
Falcon 900 owners can select options for acoustic materials, such as fuselage skin and floor damping, thermal acoustic insulation bags, over-frame blankets and carpet pad.
“The Falcon 900 is a great aircraft and owners see value in improving the quality of the jets’ long-range capabilities,” said Tanya Morris, regional sales manager at Skandia. “As owners look to improve their inflight experience, a turnkey Skandia acoustic kit is terrific value. The system utilises our most technically advanced engineering and modern materials to produce a very quiet result. We have created the system in a way that owner/operators can select how much sound performance they want to add based on their budget, or how much weight they want to use.”
Skandia’s acoustic system kits can be purchased directly or through an MRO/completions centre.
