Aviation Fabricators (AvFab) is pleased to announce they have received STC approval from the FAA for the installation of its Regal Pleated Window Shades in the King Air 300, B300 and 350 model aircraft, an option for replacing the factory window polarizers. (An STC has been available for the King Air 90 and 200 models since 2011.)
These shades can remain closed on the ramp, unlike the polarizers, and have documented a 10-plus degree Fahrenheit decrease in cabin temps.
The STC’d kit includes everything necessary to convert an aircraft from the polarizers to the AvFab Regal window shades, which weigh a total of 2.2 pounds per window. Installation time for the 300 model is estimated at 35 hours per ship set, and 45 hours for the B300 and 350 models, all depending on the installation facility’s experience-level with window shades.
