FAA Project Number Awarded – Increase Gross Weight Upgrade

Global Aviation Tech LLC Awarded an FAA Project Number

Wichita, KS (November 16, 2021) – Global Aviation Tech LLC (GATECH) today received the FAA Project Number ST067891WI-A for the Increase Gross Weight Program on the Premier I/IA aircraft.

The Increase Gross Weight is the first in a series of upgrade programs planned for the Textron Aviation Premier I/IA aircraft. The list of planned programs and level of priority are as follows:

  1. Increase Gross Weight
  2. Increase in Operating Altitude
  3. Winglets
  4. Auxiliary Fuel Tanks

The target of the IGW is anywhere from 13,300 – 13,800 based on the result of the analysis. At the current time there is no increase in Maximum Zero Fuel Weight (MZFW). Once the IGW STC is complete, an additional analysis of the data will be performed for an amendment to the STC supporting a MZFW increase.

At GAT, we are committed to the Premier aircraft. We know, as a Premier operator, you have options for maintenance support. GATECH offers complete maintenance, parts support and appreciates the opportunity to quote your next maintenance event.

As a Rockwell Collins dealer, we can handle CASP renewals and subscription for the Collins equipment. Call for status of the program we will make sure the Premier community is kept in the loop with program status.

 If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. Thanks for showing interest in the program.
