Skandia, Inc. Awarded Transport Canada Civil Aviation STC for Acoustic Soundproofing Kit
Skandia, Incorporated receives final Transport Canada (TCCA) STC (supplemental type certificate) approval on its acoustic soundproofing kit for the Bombardier Global line of large-cabin business jets. FAA STC approval was received in late 2020 with EASA approval in March 2021.
The kit, engineered and tested by Skandia in 2020, delivers an exceptional cabin experience, reducing overall dB SIL (sound intensity level) significantly with minimal net-weight penalty. The acoustic qualities of the Skandia soundproofing system represent state-of-the-art material and engineering technology.
The kit is made available to operators with an "a la cart" menu of soundproofing material choices, including:
- chin fairing damping
- baggage damping
- floor damping
- thermal acoustic insulation bags
- overframe blanket
- Aerolite carpet pad.
The available Global kit is provided as turnkey with installation schematics and instructions for a straightforward install process.
Garrett Ondrus, Skandia’s business unit manager, has been key to the company’s effort to offer the business aircraft market approved turnkey acoustic solutions to the full-spectrum of aircraft sizes and classes, from turboprop to large cabin jets.
“The Bombardier Global’s TCCA approval marks the company’s third business-class aircraft soundproofing STC to have received FAA/EASA/TCCA approvals. Skandia began the program with approved kits for the King Air 200 and Pilatus PC-12. Now, as we move into larger jet aircraft, we continue to apply our state-of-the-art engineering and material technology to business aircraft of every class. You can expect to see soundproofing kits for even more aircraft in the coming years. Skandia’s team of acoustic engineers and soundproofing materials are the best in the industry.”
This latest soundproofing kit from Skandia adds to the list of over 80 airframe-specific soundproofing kits available.
For nearly 30 years, Skandia has been engineering soundproofing advancements for a wide variety of aircraft, offering turnkey acoustic solutions for all aircraft platforms, including Boeing and Airbus. A single-source provider, Skandia designs and manufactures its own product line of acoustic materials for its soundproofing kits.
