The part is a direct replacement for Cessna P/N 2612035-1, and is eligible for installation on all Cessna model 208 and 208B aircraft. It is a precision fit, drop-in replacement for the OEM component, Airforms officials noted.

We will continue to pinpoint these needs, and to offer solutions that provide both short-term and long-term savings for our customers.”
Airforms is a supplier of replacement engine baffles for a wide range of general aviation aircraft; products also include an expanding line of turboprop aircraft PMA parts, STCs, and hard to source parts for fleet operators.
