Eirtech Receive EASA STC for ELT Installation on B737-8200
Eirtech Aviation Services has announced that they been awarded an EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of ELT structural provisions and external antenna on the Boeing 737-8200. The type certificate for the 737-8200 was issued by EASA on 6th April 2021. The Eirtech STC was granted by EASA on the following day. The STC is for the installation of fixed ELT Structure provision and fixed ELT external Antenna STC on the Boeing 737-8200. Ryanair was expected to start taking deliveries of the Boeing 737-8200 in recent weeks but this has been delayed. The first deliveries will now take place during May with up to eight aircraft due for delivery.
All of the parts required for this STC are being manufactured by the in house Part 21G POA team. This demonstrates the efficiency of placing projects of this nature with Eirtech with the required expertise all under one roof. Eirtech now plans to talk with any customer who would like to consider the expansion of this cost-efficient ELT STC to other aircraft types.
