Cessna 208 and 208B Caravan – STC for high strength main wheel bolts
This STC is FAA & EASA Approved.
The Airforms, Inc. STC for high strength wheel bolts on model 208 and 208B aircraft was borne of our partnership with Caravan operators who demand the most from their equipment.
The high strength wheel bolts have been proven in the field to reduce fretting between wheel halves, and provide an additional margin of safety for the wheel assembly. High strength MS21250 bolts replace the standard AN5 hardware that fasten the wheel halves and brake disc together; high strength nuts and countersunk washers are included with each kit. Use of the high strength hardware on your Caravan aircraft will help prevent fastener failure during operations.
Our replacement bolts come in two lengths to accommodate aircraft with and without brake disc spacers, and are eligible for aircraft equipped with certain gross weight increase STCs. The high strength wheel bolts are approved for use with any of the Cessna 208/208B tire installations.
There are two configurations of bolt kits;
The kit only comes with one type of bolt – you must know if the brake disc spacers are present on the airplane you are purchasing for.
The replacement hardware is eligible for installation only on the 10 inch diameter Cleveland wheel and brake assembly P/N 20-244.
The replacement hardware is eligible for installation on aircraft equipped with any of the Aeroacoustics Aircraft Systems, Inc. Caravan STCs.
The replacement hardware is eligible for installation on aircraft equipped with or without the Aero Twin, Inc. brake disc spacer STC SA02126AK-D.
