Duncan Aviation recently released a whitepaper that explains how to avoid disturbing Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) critical areas when accessing avionics boxes in the nose bay of Hawker 800/800XP aircraft.
For these aircraft, tight tolerances for skin variances has significantly increased the ground time required for maintenance and troubleshooting on avionics boxes located behind the avionics nose bay panel, according to Duncan officials. Many operators have landed at remote locations for AOG avionics servicing, only to discover that those locations were not capable of restoring the aircraft’s RVSM certification.
The whitepaper, “Sealing Pandora’s Box: Protecting Hawker RVSM Certification,” is written by experienced airframe maintenance representatives at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln and Battle Creek facilities, and explores the issues surrounding RVSM recertification, and ways to avoid disturbing RVSM critical areas when accessing the avionics nose bay.
“Some Hawkers have continual problems with their avionics boxes, which can only be accessed through that panel,” says Dan Fuoco, Airframe Sales Rep at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Neb., facility, a factory-authorized Hawker Service Center. “A solution is available that significantly reduces ground time and recertification expense when these boxes need service.”
