Dave Valenta, Banyan’s director of maintenance gives the Aft Fuselage Locker his seal of approval, as he visualizes how nicely he could stow his own set of golf clubs.
Recently the Banyan maintenance team completed a ZR LITE Performance System and added Raisbeck Aft Fuselage Lockers on a Lear 31A.
The ZR Lite Performance System enables the aircraft to fly higher, faster and farther, while consistently saving 5-14% in fuel. The main element of this modification is a re-contoured trailing edge flap system with an extended chord that reduces high speed drag, improves lift distribution and improves flap effectiveness.
The Aft Fuselage Locker adds 300 pounds of storage space outside the aircraft, perfect for stowing skis, poles, golf bags, hunting and fishing equipment, baggage or other items. The Aft Fuselage Locker is watertight, waist high for easy access, limits wear and tear on interior, reduces trim drag and improves stability.
