RAPCO, inc. has been awarded Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its replacement auxiliary fuel pumps used on Beechcraft King Airs and Twin Otter series aircraft. These pumps will replace the Airborne models listed below.
RAPCO PMA P/N Airborne P/N Eligibility
RA1D2-12 1D2-12, 1D2-16 King Air 90, 99, 100, & 200 series

These FAA approved NEW electric fuel pumps can be used in place of the original Airborne pumps on a part-for-part basis without restriction. RAPCO has improved the rotor and vane design by using high density carbon vanes that mate with an ANODIZED internal pump cavity. Its nickel-silver commutator design combined with a rare earth magnet material will improve motor efficiency and cold weather starts. RAPCO also improved the inlet screen to help reduce the incidents of foreign object damage.
RFS will offer these new fuel pumps through its worldwide distributor network.
