|West Covina, CA - Concorde Battery Corporation is pleased to announce EASA validation of FAA STCs to upgrade to Concorde sealed lead acid batteries in Cessna Sovereigns, Embraer ERJ aircraft, and the Super Puma family of helicopters.
For Cessna Citation operators who prefer lead acid technology, this is an opportunity to upgrade to Concorde batteries and improve available starting power by 20-40% over the original equipment batteries with ESTC 10068718. RG® Series batteries have a proven history of reliably supporting Pratt & Whitney PW300 series engines at a reduced cost of acquisition and with a reduced maintenance requirement.
RG-332 Series batteries are now certified via ESTC 10068575 for installation in European registered Airbus Helicopters AS332C, AS332C1, AS332L, AS332L1, AS332L2 and EC225LP aircraft. The RG-332 Series has been exclusively designed as a drop in replacement for the original equipment battery with heated and non-heated options available. Installation requires no airframe modifications. EASA certification has also been received, based on customer demand, for installation of Concorde RG® batteries on Embraer EMB 135 and 145 aircraft using ESTC 10068179. The STC allows for installation of two RG-442 batteries designed as drop in replacements to the existing nickel cadmium batteries.
Concorde's sealed lead acid batteries are the economical solution with a lower cost of acquisition, reduced maintenance requirements, and Hazmat Exempt shipping. Concorde Batteries never require water replenishment and there is no threat of thermal runaway. At the end of life the lead acid battery is 100% recyclable.

For over 40 years Concorde has supplied stateside and foreign militaries, are preferred by airframe manufacturers for OE installations, and are chosen for business and general aviation aircraft of all types.
