Aerospace Engineering Solutions (AES), an EASA Part 21J Design Organisation Approval (DOA) provider, introduces a minor modification for portable ELT installation to address EASA’s requirements for Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) with non-rechargeable lithium batteries (NRLB), eliminating the need for STC applications.
Meeting Regulatory Requirements
EASA CAT.IDE.A.280(a) states that all aircraft with a Maximum Operational Passenger Seating Configuration (MOPSC) exceeding 19 must be equipped with at least one automatic ELT, with the provision of two for aircraft with Certificates of Airworthiness (CofA) issued before July 1, 2008. Automatic ELTs might be portable with lithium batteries as part of their design. Lithium batteries ETSO C142b non-compliant installation requires an STC application.
A Minor Modification for Maximum Impact
AES’s solution is a testament to its commitment to innovation and safety. By offering a minor modification and modification package compatible with all aircraft types, AES streamlines the compliance process. Their comprehensive solution includes engineering support, the portable ELT (Oriola) compliant with ETSO C142b, and an installation kit comprising bracketry and placards, all designed to meet NRLB installation requirements.
Benefits for Operators and Leasing Companies
The beauty of the AES solution lies in its simplicity. Operators and leasing companies can now fully comply without the STC application process. This minor modification not only ensures compliance but also offers flexibility for fleet-wide adaptations or individual aircraft adjustments in the most cost-effective manner.
