Wipaire Receives New International Approvals

SOUTH ST. PAUL, MINN. – Wipaire, Inc. has received new European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) validation of its Supplemental Type Certificate (STCs) for the Wipline 8750 float for Cessna Caravan (certified in the U.S. in July of 2012), and its single-point fueling modification for the Cessna Caravan, Grand Caravan, and Quest KODIAK.

Wipline 8750 floats were certified on the Cessna 208 Caravan in July 2012 and are currently undergoing certification testing for the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan. Wipline 8750 floats boast a gross weight increase to 8,750 lbs, an increase of 390-750 pounds, depending upon aircraft configuration.

Tanis also holds EASA validation for STC SA270CH for Cessna Caravan modifications including vortex generators and installation of the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-114A, and Brazilian approval for its single-point fuel modification.

The Wipaire Single Point Fueling System enables aircraft to be fueled from the ground, eliminating the need for ladders and enabling the aircraft to be fueled more safely and expeditiously. In aircraft equipped with a TKS anti-ice system, the risk of damage resulting from over-the-wing fueling is eliminated. Wipaire’s electronic monitoring ensures that the aircraft is reliably topped-off and a digital display with touch screen controls ensures an easy interface for the user (www.wipaire.com).
