Cascade Engineering Solutions
engineering solutions has been the driving force moving Cascade from an ag-air
flying service to a FAA Parts Manufacturing Authority and Supplemental Type
Certified product manufacturer. Cascade
works with both fixed and rotary wing applications and we look forward to
taking on your challenge. Cascade engineering solutions has the resources and
talent to take your idea from concept to STC. Below are just a few examples.
Turbo Conversions, LLC approached Cascade with a problem they were having in the
Middle East and North Africa with their PT6-67
powered DC-3 Aircraft. Prior to our
solution, the DC-3ís were unable to take off from the strips they were
operating out of without over temping. Simply
the turbines were temping out to due to negative intake pressure and high
ambient air temperature. Full torque could not be applied during takeoff
without temping out. Operators were also
fighting dirt, dust and sand ingestion that had lowered TBO to 400-500hrs.
engineering solutions developed the filter barrier system for Basler Turbo
Conversions that provided an answer where:
- Operators are now able to pull full
torque under any ambient temperature without exceeding max ITT allowing
for operations into even shorter strips than previously.
- With the Cascade engineered
filtration system, TBO is now extended to over 2000 hours.
Case Study 2:
time client, Scott Baker of Versatile Helicopters in Chemainus, Vancouver Island, British
Columbia needed the reliability, power and weight
savings of a turbine conversion in the experimental category for his Broussard
MH.1521. The Broussard MH.1521 is a 1950s French
six-seat utility monoplane designed by Max Holste to meet a French Army
requirement. Cascade engineering solutions developed the firewall forward
conversion to include:
- New Motor
Pressure Cowl with lifetime Filter
- All new sheet metal and fiberglass firewall
forward primed ready for the clients final paint scheme.
engineering solutions welcomes a new challenge; we look forward to taking your
idea from concept to a STC.
