(JUNE 26, 2013 - BURLINGTON, ONTARIO) Comtek receives PDA design approval from Transport Canada on the Embraer 170/190 cabin & baggage floors therefore allowing Comtek to develop aftermarket floors for this aircraft. Under the existing bi-lateral agreements, this PDA approval is accepted under FAA and EASA airworthiness rules.
This approval allows Comtek to leverage its extensive experience in the design and manufacturing of floor panels on other aircraft platforms to sell a cost competitive product directly to Embraer operators with improved lead times over OEM. The floor panels are constructed to be highly wear resistant for maximum durability and are guaranteed by a 24 month warranty that covers materials and workmanship.
“The addition of these floor panels to our product line reinforces our ongoing commitment to optimizing Comtek’s customer experience. By offering high quality floor panels right off the shelf, we can significantly reduce lead times to our customers.” says Dennis Cicci, Director; Sales & NPI.
Comtek will continue to expand the list of available part numbers based on customer demand until such time as the 170 and 190 platform portfolios are complete.
