Steecon Enterprises (Booth No. 1061) recently announced availability of its Star Trak “pocket” doors for the Dassault Falcon Jet 900/900EX following a ruling by the FAA to allow owners of these aircraft to install doors in partitions between passenger compartments.
Steecon Enterprises has manufactured more than 500 pocket doors for corporate and business aircraft since it started operations in 1988. The company offers several different pocket doors built to fit specific size aircraft, and each door is built completely assembled and ready to install to aircraft bulkheads, said a spokesman.
Midcoast Aviation of Cahokia, Ill., has received a special regulatory exemption for installation of a mid-cabin door on the Falcon 900B and 900EX. The hard-surface, manually operated pocket door would replace the current curtain separator. A flight-deck annunciator signals the crew when the door is closed, and an emergency decompression panel provides passenger access to an exit door.
Enflite, Inc. (LifePort Booth No. 4620) is at NBAA’06 with a new line of products and improvements for the business jet cabin.
The Georgetown, Texas company is especially well known for its cabin pocket doors, and is introducing a slide-rail system and counter-balance spring said to ensure smooth and consistent operation.
