FAA Approves AerSafeTM to Comply with Fuel Tank Flammability Reduction Rule for Boeing 767 Aircraft

(AETOS Wire)-- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to AerSale® for installation of the AerSafe™ system on Boeing 767 series aircraft (ST03599NY), in compliance with the Fuel Tank Flammability Reduction (FTFR) rule. This new STC is in addition to AerSale’s STCs for the Boeing 737 Classic series (ST03589NY) and the Boeing 737 NG series (ST02980NY), approved by the FAA in 2016. “AerSafe is a truly elegant solution—easy to install, no parts to fail, and at a fraction of the cost of a nitrogen inerting system,” said Basil Barimo, Chief Operating Officer at AerSale. “Combining these benefits with a six-day installation window, AerSafe is really the obvious choice. Airlines and operators without a current order in place for a nitrogen inerting system have a potential one-year wait time. And, those systems incur substantial ongoing costs. When you consider the loss of revenue while an airplane is being retrofitted, the AerSafe system pays for itself many times over.” Tested......
