AVCON SOLVING NOISE REDUCTION TO KEEP LEARJET 20 SERIES ALIVE SUBMITS WITH STAGE 3 NOISE SUPPRESSOR SUPPLEMENTAL TYPE CERTIFICATE PROJECT
OLATHE, KANSAS, June 25, 2013, – Butler National Corporation (OTCQB: BUKS), a leader in the growing global market for structural modification, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and a recognized provider of management services in diverse business groups and the parent of Avcon Industries, Inc., announces it has applied for a supplemental type certificate for a stage 3 noise suppression device for the Learjet 20 series airplanes.
The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 contains provisions that ban operation of a number of aircraft models due to noise on December 31, 2015. The Learjet 20 series airplanes are included aircraft. The engine-mounted Avcon Stage 3 Noise Suppressor incorporated with other unique features will allow the Learjet 20 series airplanes to comply with the government-mandated Stage 3 noise restrictions that go into effect in December 2015. There were over 700 Learjet 20 series airplanes manufacturedwith approximately 350 still in service. Butler National plans to receive the Avcon Silencer STC for the CJ610-4, CJ610-6, and CJ610-8A engines by the fall of this year.
“The Learjet 20 series airplanes were one of the first business jets. The mandate to comply with stage three noise restrictions will effectively ground the entire fleet of Learjet 20 series airplanes if a reasonable noise solution is not timely developed. We believe we are there, both with cost, installation and operation. We are dedicated to keeping these classic airplanes flying and plan to begin delivering Avcon Silencers in early fall. Avcon was the one to step up and successfully develop a RVSM solution for these aircraft. We now offer a WAAS Approach GARMIN avionics upgrade. We are committed to the long-term support of these Learjet 20 Series ‘Workhorse Aircraft’. The task has not been easy, but we on track with the solution. Our goal is a cost-effective alternative to these owners who would like to continue to fly their Lear 20 series airplanes,” commented Clark Stewart, President and CEO of Butler National Corporation.
