FAA: Part 135 pilots can use SmartStem to check tire pressure on all certified aircraft

Crane

LYNNWOOD, Wa., 14 Aug. 2012. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials have approved the SmartStem Wireless Tire Pressure Monitoring System from Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co. (NYSE:CR), for use by Part 135 pilots to check tire pressure on all certified aircraft. “No other products on the market…allow a Part 135 pilot to check their own tires,” reveals a company spokesperson.

“It is our opinion that pilots conducting part 135 operations may use the SmartStem to perform daily tire pressure checks as a pre-flight task if the system has been properly installed on the aircraft by means of an STC or other FAA approval," the FAA said in a letter to Crane, dated 8 July 2012.

SmartStem is designed to deliver: reduced maintenance costs, improved convenience, pilot autonomy, and automatic tracking of tire pressure checks, helping assure safety and extend tire life.

SmartStem Tire Pressure Sensors are already certified for use on a variety of business jets. Crane is in the process of certifying SmartStem on additional business, regional, and large commercial aircraft.
