EASA Policy Change Permits Approval of Power Flow STC's on European Registered Aircraft


      Daytona Beach, FL - Up until December 2017, European pilots were not able to install Power Flow exhaust systems onto their EASA registered aircraft.  Unless Power Flow already held EASA validation on the STC’d kit specific to their aircraft, the governing agency would not approve the installation.   The company had attempted a couple of EASA validations on their STCs but encountered a variety of obstacles which prevented full validation.

However, due to a recent policy change, EASA registered aircraft may now apply for a specific single airframe serial number approval from EASA by paying a one-time application fee of €239.  The new policy states that if the STC meets seven specific criteria (which all of the company’s Tuned Exhausts comply with), they will issue the approval.  EASA further guarantees that they will either issue an approval specific to that aircraft or they will refund the Customer’s application fee.

The company offers STC’d kits for a wide range of General Aviation aircraft, from several manufacturers including Cessna, Piper, Grumman, Mooney, Diamond, Beechcraft and Aviat. EASA just granted its first approval for a Tuned Exhaust System to a European registered Diamond DA40. They approved that application in two weeks.

Working through their Authorized Dealer in the U.K., Airspeed Aviation, LTD in Derby, the company has successfully received approval for two Cessna 177RG aircraft. They have also received approval for a Mooney M20J.

The EASA approval process requires that Power Flow provide a letter of authorization specific to a particular aircraft.  Power Flow provides the letter at no cost to any aircraft owner interested in pursuing the upgrade. 

“We are thrilled that EASA has created a pathway through the regulations to allow EASA aircraft owners to benefit from the terrific safety and performance improvements that a Power Flow exhaust adds to their aircraft.” stated Darren Tilman, General Manager of Power Flow Systems.

The Power Flow exhaust system is an FAA Approved tuned exhaust system that provides an increase of 30 to 130 additional RPM, an additional 100-250 feet per minute in climb and the ability to go the same airspeed for up to 2.2 fewer gallons per hour in fuel burn. Aircraft equipped with constant speed propellers also see an increase in cruise speed of 3 – 7 knots.
