Continuously and proactively pursuing technically advanced Engineered Solutions to meet customer needs—often before those needs are recognized.

Engineered Solutions from AerSale® enable aircraft owners and operators to comply with rules and mandates from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other regulatory agencies around the world, while realizing significant benefits.

Our innovative Engineered Solutions include in-house alternative repairs and modifications designed to lower replacement costs and provide cost-saving means for complying with regulatory mandates and recommendations. In addition, our Engineered Solutions reduce downtime, decrease capital investment required for aircraft upgrades, and extend aircraft service life.

AerSale Engineered Solutions with FAA STCs

AerSafe® for FAA Part 121 Carriers to Meet FAA Fuel Tank Inerting Rule

A more economical fuel tank flammability reduction option, AerSafe has a short lead time, installs quickly, and is virtually maintenance-free.

AerTrak® for ADS-B Out

Our cost-effective ADS-B Out solution offers numerous advantages while offering an easy path to ADS-B Out compliance.

AerAware for Full Landing Procedures with No Natural Vision

A complete Head-Up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS), AerAware™ easily installs and integrates to overcome extreme weather conditions and low visibility situations—both day and night. The STC is currently in development.

Compliance Made Easy

The short lead times of AerSale Engineered Solutions allow operators to avoid potential installation facility backlogs, component shortages, and price premiums as compliance deadlines approach.

From Initial Concept to Certification

We have brought to market proprietary systems such as AerSafe and AerTrak, which have been issued Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for specific aircraft types from the FAA, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (ANAC). The STC for AerAware™ is currently in development, with FAA approval expected in Q3 2020.

Once conceptualized and developed, our Engineered Solutions are produced in partnership with third parties or through AerSale Parts Manufacturing, our full-service design, build, and installation aircraft modification and alteration facility. 

Pain-Free Installation

Proprietary AerSale Engineered Solutions come as a fabricated kit that includes all necessary parts and can be installed by our technicians at any hangar around the world.

Engineered Solutions from AerSale

AerSafe: A More Economical Option for FAA Part 121 Carriers to Meet FAA Fuel Tank Inerting Rule

AerSafe is one of the few FAA approved solutions to mitigate fuel tank ignition. This system is an effective, yet economical means to achieve compliance for passenger aircraft flying within or into the United States operating under FAR Part 121. AerSafe limits the amount of available oxygen that can ignite fuel vapors and prevents sparks from initiating an explosion.

Compare AerSafe to Nitrogen Generating Systems (NGS)

Unlike nitrogen generating systems, AerSafe does not use an Air Separator Module (ASM), whose membrane fibers are damaged by high levels of ozone, therefore requiring ongoing service.

AerSafe offers a number of distinct advantages:

  • Comes as a complete prefabricated kit
  • No mechanical parts that can fail
  • No time-change components to replace
  • No flight test requirements after installation
  • Virtually maintenance-free
  • Aircraft can be modified or de-modified without any structural changes
  • Requires no maintenance between heavy-check visits or special tooling to remove and install the parts

AerTrak: A Cost-Effective ADS-B Out Solution

AerTrak is an FAA approved system to comply with the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations rule. Beginning in 2020, this new rule is a critical part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).

ADS-B provides enhanced navigational accuracy using precise tracking via global positioning satellite (GPS) signals. Reducing risk and improving safety, the technology increases navigational coverage, especially in remote areas beyond radar range. Additionally, ADS-B enables more direct flight plans, thereby saving time, costs, and reducing emissions.

Already Equipped with an ACSS Transponder? No ADS-B Transponder Needed

Advantages of the AerTrak ADS-B Out solution include:

  • Cost-effective for operators of Boeing 737 Classic, 737 NG, 757-200, and 777-200 series aircraft and does not require MMR replacement
  • Seamless integration with most existing avionics and cockpit controls
  • Easy path to ADS-B Out compliance

AerAware™: A Next Generation Enhanced Flight Vision Solution (EFVS)

Integrating the Universal Avionics’ ClearVisionTM system components, AerAware™ is a complete Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) solution providing head-up capability combined with enhanced vision (EVS) and synthetic 3D terrain display (SVS). The system enables operators to overcome extreme weather conditions and low visibility situations—both day and night. As part of the FAA's Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) roadmap, AerAware™ aligns with FAR 91.176 and enables operators to perform a full landing procedure with no natural vision, where the reported visibility is below approach minimums. The system offers unmatched capabilities, providing dispatch and landing approach priority as well as Low Visibility Landing regardless of the destination airport's infrastructure.

AerAware™ delivers more key advantages:

  • Complete Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS)
  • Brightest, highest resolution Head-Up Display (HUD) using a Head-Wearable Device (HWD)
  • Forward-fit and retrofit platforms
  • Lightweight
  • Easy installation and integration
