In 2007, Comtran designed and certified a hush kit for the JT8D-200 engines installed on all McDonnel Douglas MD-80 Series aircraft. The SuperQ Kit benefits include:
- FAA Stage IV or EASA Chapter IV noise compliance
- Reduced fuel burn
- Lower engine EGT, resulting in lower maintenance costs
- Pays for itself from its own savings within two years under a typical flight schedule
- FAA and EASA Certified Supplemental Type Certificate (STC)
The SuperQ program will ensure that operators are able to economically operate the MD80 series well into the 21st century, allowing the airframe to achieve its designed service life while continuing to operate as the backbone for airlines in the US and abroad.
Through it’s leasing division, Comtran is able to offer its customers flexible financing solutions to meet their cash flow needs.
