Air Plains Services Gains PMA for Cessna Airbox Gasket
WELLINGTON, KS (March 31, 2020) – Air Plains Services, a world leader in general aviation engine and avionics upgrades, has gained Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) from the Federal Aviation Administration to manufacture new replacement airbox gaskets for a variety of Cessna single-engine piston aircraft.
“This was a natural extension of our popular airbox PMA and repair business,” said Katie Church, head of sales and marketing for Air Plains. “Airbox assemblies should be checked often since they’re subject to a lot of vibration, and replacing the gasket with our new PMA version is easy and inexpensive. A couple of clicks at our online store and it’s on the way to your mechanic.”
Earlier this year, Air Plains received FAA PMA certification to manufacture new replacement airboxes for a variety of Cessna 180, 182 and 188 aircraft. The airbox, Part Number APS0750144-33, is certified for use on Cessna 180s produced since 1960 (C thru K), Cessna 182s produced from 1959 thru 1986 (B thru R), and Cessna 188s produced from 1966 thru 1975 (thru B).
In addition to the new PMA airboxes, Air Plains also offers standard, like-new, repaired airboxes for Cessna 172 aircraft and are usually in stock for immediate shipment.
