Duncan Offers PMA Tie-Down Bolts for Citation

Duncan aviation is selling tie-down bolts required for Citation 560-series operators who upgrade to a Securaplane sealed lead acid battery.

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.”
