West Star Aviation Granted Approval on Falcon 2000 Baggage Modification STC
East Alton, IL, November 1, 2016 – West Star Aviation is proud to announce they have been granted approval on their Falcon 2000 baggage Modification STC.
This modification will allow West Star to create usable, baggage space in the Aft unpressurized area. The forward servicing compartment (FSC) panel enclosure will feature a 21.75 sq. ft. footprint, and 73.5 cu.ft. of usable baggage space. The installation weight of this modification is 115 pounds and can accommodate 185-275 pounds while still allowing access to all common service and maintenance items with no additional fire detection or suspension needed.
“This installation provides FAA-approved stowage provisions as it converts existing space into usable and much needed baggage and storage space. It will provide structural restraint for security while still retaining existing aircraft equipment stowage provisions including tow bar, ladder, engine inlet cover tool and the fly away kit,” said Rodger Renaud, President and Chief Operating Officer, West Star Aviation.
This modification is available to over 500 Falcon 2000 aircraft models and will have a minimal impact on weight and c.g. balance.
