Skandia has received final FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval on its acoustic soundproofing kit for the Bombardier Global line of large cabin business jets.
Skandia engineered and tested the soundproofing kit for the Global aircraft in 2020. The kit delivers an exceptional cabin experience, reducing overall dB(SIL) levels significantly with minimal net weight penalty.
The kit is made available to operators with an Ala Carte menu of soundproofing material choices which include:
- Skin damping
- Floor damping
- Thermal acoustic insulation bags
- Overframe blanket
- Carpet pad
The remarkable acoustic qualities of the Skandia soundproofing system represent state of the art material and engineering technology.
The available Global kit is provided as turnkey with installation schematics and instructions for a straightforward install process.
Jarod Triplett, Skandia’s president, has led the company’s effort to offer the business aircraft market approved turnkey acoustic solutions to the full-spectrum of aircraft sizes and classes, from turboprop to large cabin jets. “The Global approval marks the company’s third business class aircraft soundproofing STC. We began the program with approved kits for the King Air 200 and Pilatus PC-12. Now, as we move into larger jet aircraft, we continue to apply our state of the art engineering and material technology to business aircraft of every class. You can expect to see soundproofing kits for even more aircraft in the coming years. Skandia’s team of acoustic engineers and soundproofing materials are the best in the industry,” Triplett says.
This latest soundproofing kit from Skandia adds to the list of over 80 airframe-specific soundproofing kits available.
A single source provider, Skandia designs and manufactures its own product line of acoustic materials for their soundproofing kits. Consultation and custom acoustic solutions for individual aircraft of any size are an area of specialization for Skandia.
