DAVIS JUNCTION, IL May 17, 2021 – Skandia, Incorporated has received final Federal Aviation Administration Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval of an acoustic soundproofing kit for all variants of the Dassault Falcon 900 business jet.
This is the fourth FAA STC approval awarded to Skandia for a state-of-the-art soundproofing acoustic solution.
Skandia engineered and tested the soundproofing kit for the Falcon 900 series in 2021. The kit delivers an exceptional cabin experience and increases passenger comfort in all phases of flight. In final testing, a significant overall sound reduction was achieved throughout the aircraft.
The kit is made available to operators with an Ala Carte menu of soundproofing material choices which include:
- Baggage damping
- Floor damping
- Thermal acoustic insulation bags
- Overframe blanket
- Carpet pad
Installation of the kit is simple and straightforward due to the intuitive kitting process of materials by Skandia as well as installation instructions and guidelines.
There are over 500 F900 jets in all models in service today. Garrett Ondrus, Business Unit Manager of Skandia, sees a valuable opportunity for F900 operators.
“The Falcon 900 is a great aircraft and owners see value in improving the quality of the jets long range capabilities. The system utilizes our most technically advanced engineering and modern materials to produce a very quiet result. We have created the system in a way that owner/operators can select how much sound performance they want to add based on their budget, or how much weight they want to use. It is a smart solution that is going to bring a lot of enjoyment to these fast aircraft, especially for long range trips. Our goal is to continue to apply this technology across all business aircraft of every class.”
