Skandia Inc. Receives Transport Canada STC Approval for PC-12 Soundproofing Acoustic Kit
Davis Junction, IL June 16, 2020 – Skandia Incorporated has received final Transport Canada STC approval of an acoustic soundproofing kit for all variants of Pilatus PC-12 aircraft.
This is the third STC regulatory approval awarded to Skandia for its improved PC-12 acoustic solution after the FAA and the European Aircraft Safety Administration (EASA) gave their approvals in the summer of 2018.
Manufactured using the most modern and effective Skandia engineered soundproofing materials, the acoustic system offers PC-12 operators and passengers reduced cabin noise and increased passenger comfort in all phases of flight.
In final testing, a significant overall sound reduction of 4dB(SIL) was achieved while some cabin seating areas achieved approximately 6dB(SIL) noise reduction.
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.
Skandia offers customers flexibility in their acoustic kit. Pilatus PC-12 owners can select options of acoustic materials such as fuselage skin and floor damping, thermal acoustic insulation bags, over frame blankets and carpet pad.
Jarod Triplett, President of Skandia, sees a valuable opportunity for PC-12 operators. “The PC-12 is a great aircraft and owners are keen on investing in it. As owners look to improve the inflight experience, a turnkey acoustic kit is a great solution. And now Canadian operators have it approved. The system utilizes our most technically advanced engineering and materials to produce a terrific 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’s an incredible solution that’s going to bring a lot of value to these great aircraft.”
Skandia Acoustic System kits can be purchased directly from Skandia or through an MRO or completions center. For more information, https://skandiainc.com/pc-12-stc-approved/
