Secondo Mona selected by Pilatus for PC-24 Fuel System
SECONDO MONA S.p.A. has been selected by Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. to supply the complete Fuel System for the new Super Versatile Jet, the Pilatus PC-24.
The Fuel System consists of two symmetrical parts, which independently provide for fuel delivery to the pertinent engine, fuel transfer among tanks and relevant ventilation and draining. The system also provides, in cooperation with A/C avionic system, for fuel gauging, discrete level sensing and fuel balancing and equalization. A single point pressure refuel system allows fast tank replenishment.
