Midcoast Finds anOpening, Creates Door To Fit

 - October 2, 2006, 2:37 PM

Midcoast Aviation has a new supplemental type certificate for a solid-surface pocket door for the Falcon 900 and Falcon 900EX. The original mid-cabin divider in the Falcon 900 was typically a curtain partition. The new manually operated door, with independent upper and lower sections, can be secured in the open position for taxi, takeoff and landing, and an annunciator alerts the flight crew when the door is closed. An emergency decompression feature provides fail-safe access.
