Skandia, Inc. Receives EASA STC Approval for Dassault Falcon 900 Series Soundproofing Acoustic Kit
Skandia, Inc., receives final European Union Aviation Safety Administration (EASA) supplemental type certificate (STC) approval of an acoustic soundproofing kit for all variants of the Dassault Falcon 900 business jet. Manufactured using the most modern and effective Skandia-engineered soundproofing materials, the acoustic system offers Falcon 900 operators and passengers reduced cabin-noise and increased comfort in all phases of flight.
In final testing, an overall sound reduction of 4dB(SIL) was achieved, while some cabin seating areas achieved approximately 6dB(SIL) noise reduction.
Skandia offers customers flexibility with the acoustic kit. Falcon 900 owners can select options of acoustic materials such as fuselage skin and floor damping, thermal acoustic insulation bags, over-frame blankets and carpet pad. Installation of the kit is simple and straightforward, due to Skandia's intuitive kitting process of materials as well as clear installation instructions and guidelines.
Tanya Morris, regional sales 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. As owners look to improve their inflight experience, a turnkey Skandia acoustic kit is a terrific value. 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.”
Skandia Acoustic System kits can be purchased directly from Skandia or through an MRO or completions center.
This is the fifth EASA STC approval awarded to Skandia for a soundproofing acoustic solution. Skandia provides soundproofing enhancements for aircraft of all sizes and categories, up to heavy VVIP jets exceeding 100,000 pounds.
