Cargo Pods (“Squirrel Cheeks”)

  • Product Description

    The Cargo Pods increase the volume of both the left hand (LH) and right hand (RH) cargo compartments. They must be installed in pairs. The composite pod has a hinged door which opens widely for easy access and is held open by a gas strut. The door fastens securely for flight with three positive latches. The pod also includes a door open warning annunciator. The upper portion of the cargo pod surface includes a maintenance platform. The fuel filler and EPU access is unaffected. The cargo pods are ideal for utility missions, tourism and corporate passenger transport.
