QTA Gets STC Approval for Gulfstream G200 Carbon Graphite Inlet Upgrade

Quiet Technology Aerospace (QTA) has received STC (Supplemental Type Certificate ST04261AT) approval for its second carbon graphite inlet upgrade program for Gulfstream G200 aircraft and their PW305 engines.
QTA states that its Carbon Graphite Composite Barrel is a solution to aluminum inner-barrel inlet corrosion and acoustic screen degradation on the G200’s PW305 engines. When installed, the inlets appearance is the same as originally manufactured. it is supplied with a lifetime structural warranty.
The company has also implemented a low cost inlet ‘loaner and exchange program’ that keeps aircraft free from extended AOG conditions. The first set of ‘loaner’ inlets will be available in October 2016.
“Our engineering and manufacturing team has worked very hard to bring this terminating solution and exchange program to affected G200 operators. Aside from the permanent fix our graphite composite inlets offer, we have throttled up our production, cleared out any remaining backlog and put in place a loaner and exchange program which for the G200 will be up and running in October,” said Martin Gardner, QTA’s vice president engineering and customer support.
