Baldwin City, KS, August 15, 2018: McFarlane Aviation Products is excited to announce new approvals for Piper aircraft!
Piper nosecone baggage door latch and lock kits are now available from McFarlane Aviation Products. These improved FAA-PMA direct replacements comply with AD2009-13-06R1. Installers may reference the Alternative Method of Compliance (AMOC) #117A-16106-09. Effected models include the PA-23; PA-31; PA42 aircraft. McFarlane offers complete hardware and placard kits at a significant cost savings over OEM parts. Placards come in both black and white versions to contrast any paint scheme. The pre-assembled locks with offset cams help prevent installation mistakes. “We really try and think up all possible scenarios to make installation easier for our customers,” said Ben Strahm, McFarlane Aviation Technical Support. “Not only do we strive to produce the highest quality parts, but we also want all the supporting documentation to be clear and easily understood.”
Also newly FAA-PMA approved is McFarlane’s seat spring which replaces the old Piper coil spring/hydraulic style with a smoother operating gas spring. Part number MC555-692 replace Piper part numbers 76445-000 and 555-692 which were originally manufactured by P.L. Porter. These higher quality gas springs are offered at a significant cost savings.
This newly approved seat spring is a great addition to the line of replacement parts for Piper aircraft that McFarlane already produces. MC587-404 seat spring has years of proven success. It replaces the original part numbers 89178-010 and 587-404 which were manufactured by Stabilus Bloc-O-Lift or Gas Springs Corp Easy Lift. McFarlane has your Piper seat springs covered!
