Installation in certified aircraft can be made either as a Standard Change or a Minor Change, depending on aircraft type and required applicability. A Standard Change installation is limited to day VFR, whereas a Minor Change allows for night and IFR). For both installation types, you need the same paperwork. It's a common misconception that you don't need the paperwork for a Standard Change installation — the only difference is that a Standard Change installation does not need to be approved by EASA or a DOA.
The following paperwork is normally required:
- Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS)
- Wiring Diagram
- Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA)
- Installation Instructions
- Mass and Balance Form
- Load Analysis Form
Some installers choose to create these documents themselves. Our Minor Change Approval has been created together with EASA and is already approved by them for the aircraft listed in the Approved Model List (AML); i.e. the individual installation does not need further approval. The AML for PowerFLARM Fusion includes airplanes with an MTOM up to 5,700 kg. For other aircraft, the paperwork can be used for a facilitated individual approval by EASA or by a DOA. The paperwork can also be used for a Standard Change installation.
