Aero-Instruments Begins Delivery Of Replacement Airbus Pitot Probes

FAA-Approved Replacement Parts For Six Airbus Models

Aero-Instruments announced Thursday that it has begun customer deliveries of FAA-approved replacement Pitot Probes for installation on Airbus S.A.S.-manufactured aircraft.

After 18 months of testing and evaluation, including stringent anti-icing and de-icing testing, the FAA approved Aero-Instruments' 0851HL-AI Pitot Probe for installation on the more than 4,500 Airbus A318, A319, A320, A321, A330 and A340 series aircraft in operation worldwide. Aero-Instruments is one of only three companies in the world whose Pitot Probes are approved for Airbus commercial aircraft.

The availability of the new Aero-Instruments devices helps meet increased worldwide demand for replacement Pitot Probes for Airbus-manufactured aircraft.

"The testing and approval of these precision-engineered parts was an appropriately rigorous process, and, now, we are ramping up our manufacturing quickly to help meet the increase in demand for replacement Pitot Probes," said Ryan S. Mifsud, Vice President / General Manager, Aero-Instruments. "Our ability to deliver such a high-performance product and superior customer service is essential to our customers. Products are being shipped as ordered, and we are building our inventory to help meet the needs of the Airbus fleet."

In granting Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) for the Aero-Instruments 0851HL-AI Pitot Probe, the FAA concluded that the part meets or exceeds the agreed upon certification plan, which was based on the requirements of TSO C-16A, including the anti-icing requirements outlined in SAE AS393, AS8006, and BS2G.135.

With this new FAA-PMA approval for Airbus-manufactured aircraft, Aero-Instruments is able to supply replacement Pitot and Pitot-Static Probes for after-market installation on the majority of aircraft the world's airlines operate. In addition to the certification for Airbus aircraft, Aero-Instruments is one of only two companies in the world with approval for replacement probes for Boeing-manufactured aircraft. Aero-Instruments received its first FAA certification for replacement parts for Boeing-manufactured commercial planes in 2006.

Aero-Instruments also manufactures Pitot Probes and related devices and systems for the general aviation, rotorcraft, defense, business jet and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle markets.
