New Berlin, Wis., USA (February 2011) – EMTEQ has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval for the following Supplemental Type Certificate:
STO3906AT: Installation of the EMTEQ LED Anti-Collision/Position (Navigation) Light in the Bombardier Regional Jet 100/200/440 (CL-600-2B19) Aircraft and associated hardware in accordance with Master Drawing List 2-83710-001 Revision B dated December 28, 2010 or later FAA approved drawing revisions.
“EMTEQ has designed an LED drop-in replacement for the CRJ combined tail position and anti-collision light. Early installations demonstrate that this can be done during overnight maintenance visits with installation complete in less than two hours,” said Dan Rice, Business Unit Director with EMTEQ.
The EMTEQ LED tail light has a life expectancy of approximately 30,000 hours and meets FAR requirements. It is designed to be less susceptible to fluid ingress thus reducing the need to reseal and offering customers improved reliability and lower maintenance costs. Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) will be issued 1Q2011.
EMTEQ’s current STC portfolio supports more than fifty aircraft platforms with over 100 combined installations for lighting, communication, navigation, and other systems, many with EASA and Transport Canada approval. EMTEQ employs more than eighty engineers and designers between its design engineering and certification offices in Wisconsin, Florida, Canada, Brazil and Switzerland.
