Fuel Tank Inerting System (FTIS)

Flight Operations | Applicability: Airbus fleet

Airbus Aircraft Family: A300 | A310 | A320 | A330 | A340

On July 21th, 2008, the FAA required operators and manufacturers to incorporate a Flammability Reduction Means (FRM) or ignition mitigation means on fuel tanks having a flammability exposure exceeding certain thresholds. These amendments affect new aircraft types, new aircraft in production and in-service aircraft produced after January 1st, 1992.


Eligible Aircraft:

  • A320 Family aircraft
  • A300-600
  • A330-200
  • A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, A340-600

We propose flexible retrofit arrangements:

  • Airline engagement for aircraft ship set deliveries per month with flexible selection of aircraft MSNs
  • Material dispatched on demand limiting storage cost
  • Material delivered per MSN, with customised delivery address allowing flexible MRO selection for the airline.
  • Three independent SBs to allow embodiment of Systems provisions, Structural provisions and FTIS installation and activation.


  • Compliant with FAA amendments
  • Flexible retrofit arrangements
