Raisbeck’s ZR LITE System FAA Certification now includes West Star Aviation’s RVSM System

Raisbeck Engineering announced that its ZR LITE Performance System for the Learjet 35/36 fleet has been FAA-approved with West Star Aviation’s RVSM (Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum) System. The Raisbeck Aft Fuselage Locker and Mark IV have long been RVSMapproved with the initial release of West Star’s RVSM.

No changes to the West Star RVSM installation are required for any of the Raisbeck Systems, and previously equipped RVSM airplanes also need no updates when installing the ZR LITE System.

This milestone is applicable to any Learjet 35/36 series aircraft equipped with the West Star RVSM system. Raisbeck Engineering is currently completing similar certification efforts with Bombardier Aviation Services and expects inclusion of the ZR LITE System with their RVSM system soon.

The ZR LITE Performance Enhancement System was FAA-certified in October 2004, and has been in service since then. Orders for ZR LITE Systems are now being taken for 2005 installations at West Star and other Raisbeck Installation Centers.

The ZR LITE System offers numerous advantages to operators such as; Increased allowable MTOW from higher altitude airports and shorter sea-level runways; Shorter climb times; Higher initial cruise altitudes; Lower fuel burn rates; 6+% increase in range.

Three Raisbeck Authorized Dealer/Installation Centers have been designated – Galvin Flying Service, West Star Aviation, and Bombardier Aviation Services.

Raisbeck Engineering is dedicated to improving the performance, productivity and operational
flexibility of business and commercial aircraft through infusion of innovative and technically advanced systems. Founded in 1973, Raisbeck Engineering has thousands of aircraft in service today, flying its systems. These include the fleets of Learjets, Sabreliners, King Airs, Boeing 727s and Airbus A320s. Raisbeck Engineering is headquartered adjacent to Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington.
