STCs for Skandia’s Challenger 600 soundproofing kit


Skandia’s acoustic soundproofing kit for the Bombardier Challenger 600 series has earned FAA and EASA STC approvals.

Skandia engineered and tested the soundproofing kit for this series in 2020. The kit is designed to deliver an exceptional cabin experience by reducing overall decibel (SIL) levels greatly, with minimal net weight penalty.

The kit is made available to operators with an à la carte menu of soundproofing material choices, including skin damping, floor damping, thermal acoustic insulation bags, overframe blanket, and Aerolite carpet pad.

The Challenger 600 series kit is provided as a turnkey solution with installation schematics and instructions.

Tanya Morris, Skandia’s regional sales manager, has been key to the company’s efforts in bringing turnkey acoustic solutions to market for the full spectrum of business aircraft sizes and classes, from turboprops to large cabin jets.

“The Bombardier Challenger 600 series STC approvals mark the company’s latest business class aircraft soundproofing STC to have received FAA and EASA approvals,” said Morris. “Skandia began the programme with approved kits for the King Air 200 and Pilatus PC-12. Now, as we move into larger jet aircraft, we continue to apply our state-of-the-art engineering and material technology to business aircraft of every class. You can expect to see soundproofing kits for even more aircraft in the coming years. Skandia’s team of acoustic engineers and soundproofing materials are the best in the industry.”

This latest kit adds to a list of more than 80 airframe-specific soundproofing kits that are available from the company.
