BIG LAKE, Alaska — Airforms has received FAA PMA approval for part number AF2654006-10, the Caravan Primary Exhaust Flange.
The flange is a direct replacement for Cessna P/N 2654006-10, and has been engineered to reduce the incidence of cracking, according to company officials.
The flanges are eligible for installation on all Cessna model 208 and 208B aircraft with the -114 or the -114A engine, and are precision fit, drop-in replacements for the OEM components.
“We have been working with a number of Caravan fleet operators for some time, and they have requested numerous PMA programs for components that present challenges due to high OEM component costs, poor availability or short service life,” said Airforms’ Sales and Marketing Executive Steve Hunter. “Several operators had requested a PMA program for the Primary Exhaust Flange due to cracking issues and periodic availability problems with the OEM parts. We have responded with high quality, economically priced components that will provide long service life — even in the world’s harshest environments. These parts are on the shelf and are readily available immediately.”
