In an effort to make sealed lead acid (SLA) battery technology more affordable for Cessna Citation operators, Duncan Aviation has developed and is offering parts manufacturer approved (PMA) battery replacement tie-down bolts at a significant discount with the purchase of a new Securaplane SLA battery.

These tie-down bolts are an STC requirement for installation of a Securaplane SLA battery in Citation 560s. Until now, Citation 560 operators wanting to install Securaplane batteries had to purchase expensive tie-down bolts directly from the OEM.

Bob Tooker, Duncan Aviation’s Securaplane battery sales rep, told AIN that until now operators could purchase the bolts from only one source at a cost of almost $1,300. “Several potential customers asked us to look into other options. As a result, Duncan Aviation is now offering a pair of PMA tie-down bolts for $400 with the purchase of a Securaplane SLA battery.”
