02/07/2008 WEST STAR GETS FAA APPROVAL FOR HAWKER MODIFICATIONS
West Star Aviation Inc. announced they have received FAA approval for modification of a wing to fuselage fairing seal on all HS-125 series Hawkers, including the new 900XP and 750.Developed at their Grand Junction, Colorado Hawker Beechcraft Authorized Service Center, this modification replaces the OEM seal, which was glued to the wing upper surface and was prone to deterioration and coming loose in flight. This modern, silicone based P seal is tucked under the fairing panel, is not visible on the wing surface, and reduces the labor hours required for removal and installation of this large access panel.
The wing also looks much cleaner with the new seal.
The modification can be completed at the Grand Junction, Colorado or Dallas, Texas facilities and will improve maintainability, appearance, and reliability to the aircraft.
