Having just recently received the FAA PMA approvals for their first Mooney engine baffle kit, Airforms, Inc. has announced FAA PMA approval for the 1973-1974 Cessna C177B engine baffles. The replacement Cardinal baffles are eligible for installation on all 1973-1974 Cardinal C177B’s S/N 17701774 through 17702123. Airforms’ engineering department received the new PMA’s (Part Manufacturing Approvals) recently through its continued work with the FAA Anchorage ACO (Aircraft Certification Office). The new Cardinal baffles add to an existing product line of over 60 unique kits of FAA PMA engine baffles for a wide range of aircraft.
“Cardinal owners are well known throughout the aviation industry as a group that utilizes a regimen of meticulous maintenance and information sharing to keep all of their aircraft in pristine condition. Our new baffle set provides an additional resource to this group with high quality, long lasting components at a fraction of the cost of OEM parts,” said Airforms’ Sales & Marketing Executive, Steve Hunter. “All of these engine baffles are designed for longer life and increased serviceability – with pricing that makes them affordable for Cardinal owners everywhere.”
“This is the first of several additional engine baffle kits for which we will be announcing FAA PMA approvals prior to the end of the year. Keep an eye on our website for all the latest information,” added Hunter.
Airforms’ baffles feature a bare metal or durable powder coat finish and incorporate design reinforcements with longer lasting materials, and feature a range of seal options. All baffles are designed to be precise replacements for the original parts.
