Cessna Fuel Valve Replacement

South Saint Paul, MN / June 24, 2018 - Sierra Hotel Aero (SHA) has received a PMA (Parts Manufacturing Authority) certificate for the Cessna 140A replacement fuel valve.

Along with prior approvals for earlier models, SHA can now replace all Cessna 120/140 OEM valves with these modern ball type valves. The valve can be replaced by any A&P mechanic with no need for a Form 337 at an introductory cost of $740, valid until August 1, 2018.

Sierra Hotel Aero has developed numerous replacement parts for older airplanes. These valves are available for immediate shipping.

Chris Gardner said, “With over 400 of these aircraft flying and difficulty in getting new replacement parts, we were happy to be able to receive FAA approval and market this valve, which is similar to our Navion valves.”

“We hope to have additional vintage Cessna aircraft fuel valves done in the very near future,” Gardner added. “We want to keep these legacy aircraft alive with their great flying characteristics and long history.”

Sierra Hotel Aero, Inc., has worked hard to modernize and help keep costs down by offering an alternative, company officials said.

Sierra Hotel Aero, Inc. was established in 1997 and since 2001 has been manufacturing parts, performing repairs, approving structural modifications and design authority in support of the Navion fleet of 1,200 airplanes worldwide.
