On September 17th, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granted TELAIR a supplemental type certificate (STC) for its A320 Lower Deck Modular Cargo Loading System (ModCar).
Upon completion of the first successful installation supported by TELAIR in July 2020 the FAA (Federal Aviation Authorities – USA) installation conformity was successfully performed with a subsequent certification process to achieve a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC).
The first aircraft installation and conformity were completed in Tallinn, Estonia. With this achievement and regulatory approval, now ModCar, the Modular Cargo Loading System by TELAIR, has been successfully completed.
TELAIR also received the EASA validation approval by mid of October. The aircraft will enter into revenue operations after EASA validation, with the revolutionary TELAIR ModCar system and its benefits. Additionally, the second A320 aircraft is currently in work with the system installation.
Airlines around the globe can now realize and take advantage of all the ModCar benefits
ModCar offers the latest generation of power drive units, an improved mechanical system with continuous side guide system as standard and doorsill lock enhancement, and multiple system reliability and durability improvements of the conveyor system equipment. Thanks to ModCar’s high impact resistant panels and the elimination of wet sealing, it is simple to maintain.
Modules are delivered with all necessary components and can be installed in a short time. ModCar will allow aircraft to operate in two highly flexible interchangeable configurations, enabling more adaptability to the ever-changing cargo market landscape. Further advantages for airlines are operational performance improvements in comparison to the originally installed system equipment.
