Concorde Battery Corporation Increases Battery Capacity Options for Phenom 300 Operators
EMB505 operators may now install higher-capacity Concorde batteries in the Phenom 300 with FAA-approved STC SA00959DE and EASA ESTC 10072168 Rev. 1. These new STCs provide for an option between an RG-390E 28Ah or RG-390E/30 30Ah auxiliary battery and an RG-380E/44 42Ah, RG-380E/60L 48Ah or RG-380E/53L 53Ah main starting battery, permitting operators the option to cater battery capacities to unique operational requirements for optimized performance.
STC SA00959DE is an upgrade from Concorde STC SA01703WI which installed only the RG-380E/44 (42Ah) main and RG-390E (28Ah) auxiliary batteries. SA00959DE now provides operators with the option to increase Concorde battery capacity up to 53Ah. SA01703WI holders may upgrade to SA00959DE free of charge by contacting Concorde directly for the STC paperwork.
