STC timer kits for Piper aircraft have been offered by B/E AeroSpace of Fenwick, West Virginia.

The Ice Shield kit upgrades Piper aircraft and adds value by offering continuous cycle times and failure annunciation. The current timer on a Piper requires the pilot to activate the de-icing system every time ice shedding is necessary.

With Ice Shield’s new timer kit, the pilot simply turns on the de-icing system and system will cycle every 60 seconds.

The timer is an STC upgrade and includes all necessary items: de-ice timer, wire harness, cockpit activation switch, switch mounting plate, pressures switches, STC paperwork, installation manual and all items necessary for installation of product.

Like all Ice Shield products, B/E AeroSpace timer kits are backed with a No-Hassle warranty guarantee.

  • SMR8400-03 (ELIGIBILITY – Piper PA-31 S/N 31-5 thru 31-7512009);
