Airforms awarded multiple PMA approvals

BIG LAKE, ALASKA — Airforms’ line of replacement aircraft engine baffles now includes parts for early model Cessna 172R and S aircraft. Growth also continues for Airforms’ Cessna 208/208B Caravan products with a new replacement engine oil cooler baffle, and expanded eligibility for interior vent assemblies.

Airforms’ engineering department recently received the new PMA (Part Manufacturing Approvals) through its continued work with the FAA Anchorage Aircraft Certification Office.

“We are very excited to announce this latest expansion of our product offerings,” said Dave Utsch, sales and marketing director. “We work continually and directly with our customers to hone an understanding of where our experience can best support their operations. Our commercial customers operate in some of the most demanding environments in the world – our craftsmanship and design embody their dedication. All of the parts in our most recent Caravan and Skyhawk release are designed for longer life and increased serviceability, and we are pleased to offer customers a price point near 50% of OEM list.”

The replacement Cessna 172R and S baffle kit represents the next evolution in Airforms’ engine baffle product line, adding to an existing group of 38 approved kits. The new PMA’d Skyhawk baffles apply to aircraft through the 2005 model year, and feature a durable grey powder coat finish that matches the original color. All Airforms’ engine baffle kits incorporate a reinforced design, long lasting materials, and a range of seal options, according to company officials, who note that all baffles are designed to be precise replacements for the originals parts.

Airforms’ replacement Cessna Caravan oil cooler baffle P/N AF2650098-5 applies to all models of Cessna 208 and 208B aircraft, and is constructed with improved quality and fit, company officials noted. The baffle is reinforced from the original design, and includes doublers to help prevent in-service cracking at common locations.

In addition, PMA eligibility for Airforms’ existing line of Cessna 208B cabin vents has been expanded to cover all 208 models. The replacement vents are reinforced, considerably more dent-resistant, and feature metal replaceable end caps for improved part life and increased value; a durable black powder coat finish greatly enhances interior appearance, company officials said.
