OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Commuter Air Technology (CAT), a global provider of customized aircraft modifications for commercial and government applications, has extended its list of product offerings by receiving design change approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Under the certificate, CAT is now fully authorized to sell their proprietary Exhaust Gas Extractors (EGEs) to European operators of King Air B300 series or B200GT aircraft.
CAT’s EGEs that are designed to increase fuel efficiency, improve cruise and climb performance, reduce nacelle sooting and virtually eliminate exhaust stack cracking were previously EASA approved for most King Air 100 and 200 series models. With the addition of the B300 audience, CAT will be able to bring European owners a venturi-shaped trailing edge and aerodynamically efficient exhaust gas system that optimizes the performance and functionality of their King Air.
“We are pleased to expand the offering of our EGEs in Europe,” comments Darryl Wilkerson, CAT President. “CAT has been engineering industry-leading King Air enhancements for customers globally since 1988 and specifically our EGEs have been in service since 1994 with over 150 ship sets operational today,” Wilkerson added.
CAT continues engineering on several King Air enhancements that are to be announced in 2018.
