Commuter Air Technology receives EASA approval for exhaust gas extractors


CAT EGE EASA approval

Commuter Air Technology (CAT) has received design change approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Under the certificate, CAT is now fully authorised to sell its exhaust gas extractors (EGEs) to European operators of King Air B300 series or B200GT aircraft.

CAT’s EGEs are designed to increase fuel efficiency, improve cruise and climb performance, reduce nacelle sooting and eliminate exhaust stack cracking. These were previously EASA approved for most King Air 100 and 200 series models.

Darryl Wilkerson, president of CAT, said: “We are pleased to expand the offering of our EGEs in Europe. CAT has been engineering industry-leading King Air enhancements for customers globally since 1988 and specifically our EGEs have been in service since 1994 with over 150 ship sets operational today.”

CAT continues engineering on several King Air enhancements that will be announced in 2018.
