FAA Certified System Meets 14CFR 25.981 121.117 Compliance Requirements for Fuel Tank Flammability Reduction (FTFR) and Ignition Mitigation Method (IMM)
July 24, 2018, Atlanta, GA…..Jetaire is pleased to announce that it has received a patent for its Invicta™ Reticulated Foam Ignition Mitigation technology from the U.S. Patent Office (U.S. Patent No. 9,849,998). The system is a center tank flammable solution, currently FAA-certified for the B737, 737NG, B757 and B767 aircraft as well as the Airbus A320 family of aircraft.
The Invicta technology offers a number of benefits that address FAA compliance demands. In addition, installation of the Invicta system is much faster and simpler than other products offered in the market, thus minimizing disruption of customers’ schedules.
“We are the original developers of foam technology for use as a means of compliance to FAR 25.981, and are the patent holder for the Invicta Reticulated Foam Technology,” said Mike Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Jetaire. “We understand the ins-and-outs of the technology and how it works. There is no other company in the industry with our scope and depth of knowledge about this technology.”
Jetaire’s kit and installation costs are cost effective and affordable, and installation requires less aircraft maintenance downtime than other solutions on the market. Once installed, the Invicta system is essentially maintenance-free and completely passive. Aircraft can be returned to operation in a timely fashion after the installation process.
“Our number one priority is safety,” added Williams. “Our goal is to provide our customers with a quality product that addresses the FAA’s requirements outlined in the 14 CFR 25.981 and 121.1117 compliance regulations. In addition, the system is easy to install and is competitively priced.”
