AerSale® announced today that the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (ANAC) has approved a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation of its AerSafe system on the Boeing 737 CL series aircraft (ST03589NY) in compliance with the Fuel Tank Flammability Reduction (FTFR) rule. AerSale’s STCs for the Boeing 737 CL and NG series (ST02980NY) have already been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
“We are pleased that our Brazilian customers are now able to immediately benefit from the advantages that AerSafe brings,” said Nicolas Finazzo, Chief Executive Officer of AerSale. “With no mechanical parts to fail, minimal lead time, and a two-day installation process, AerSafe is rapidly becoming the easy choice for FTFR rule compliance.”
A fuel tank ignition mitigation means exclusively developed by AerSale, AerSafe comes as a complete prefabricated kit that can be installed anywhere around the world. Boeing 737 kits are immediately available to assist operators in meeting the December 26, 2017 deadline established by the FAA and ANAC. FAA approval of AerSale’s STC for the Boeing 767 series aircraft is expected in the coming weeks, while Boeing 757 and Airbus 320 series STCs are anticipated for approval later this year.
