Jet Aviation, one of only two authorized Pats Aircraft Systems modification specialists for auxiliary fuel tank maintenance, is performing the mod work at its Basel and Geneva maintenance centers in compliance with the latest amendment to Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88 (SFAR 88).

SFAR 88 was introduced to eliminate the potential for the ignition of fuel tank vapors. All operators are required to comply with the directive by the 16th day of this month.

Jet Aviation has already modified more than 20 aircraft and is at work on three more. Modification can require up to six weeks of down time.
