QTA is a market leader in the application of advanced composites for noise attenuation and structures.
Since 1988, our Companies have achieved 11 Supplemental Type Certificates (STC’s) for Hush Kits on large transport aircraft, military transports and corporate business aircraft. QTA first introduced Carbon Graphite Composites on the DC8 hush kit certified in 1988, that’s 28 years of in service experience with advanced composites.
As the leader in Hush Kit design and manufacturing, Quiet Technology Aerospace certified the Stage 3 Hush Kit for the Gulfstream GII, GIISP, GIIB, and GIII, in 2003 and has delivered 128 aircraft sets to date.
This combination of advanced composite materials technology and acoustic engineering is now being applied to solve in service corrosion issues with Inlet Cowls, replacing the original OEM aluminum honeycomb inner barrel with an advanced composite unit that will last the life of the aircraft. The first of these for the Lear 60 aircraft was awarded an STC in October 2015, the Gulfstream G200 STC was awarded April 2016, and the Hawker 1000 STC was issued June 9, 2016. Next to be certified is for the Falcon 2000LX/E series.
QTA is located in Hollywood, FL and operates from a 30,000 sq ft air conditioned facility with a 1,000 sq ft clean room, two certified paint booths and associated equipment.
In Service support, our FAA approved Part 145 Repair Station #Q9TR440N provides support for composite and structural repairs as well as thrust reversers on Gulfstream GIII and Lear 60 aircraft.
