Sierra Long Range Fuel Tank Mod Approved for Soloy Cessna 206 Turbine Upgrades

Sierra Industries has amended its Cessna 206 Long Range Fuel System STC, allowing the installation of the wing tank modification to the turbine engine upgrade from Soloy Aviation Solutions. Sierra’s Supplemental Type Certificate amendment (SA3634SW) is applicable to both the original Soloy Turbine Cessna 206 Mark I (STC SA2353NM) and the new Soloy Aviation Solutions Mark II (SA01878SE) aircraft.

Carefully balanced to maintain the aircraft’s existing balance and center of gravity, Sierra’s Long Range Fuel System adds approximately 50 gallons additional fuel capacity to the original specifications and provides up to 2 hours of additional cruise time. The Auxiliary Fuel Tanks are manufactured from tough, durable vulcanized rubber and completely integrated with the existing fuel system, with no additional switches or fuel gauges required.

The fuel system is engineered and built to exacting F.A.R. Part 23 standards and is available in kit form for field installation. Installation by certified FAA mechanics is also available at Sierra’s facilities in Uvalde, Texas. Kit pricing for the Sierra Auxiliary Fuel System starts at under $13,500.

Soloy Aviation Solutions’ STC SA2353NM (Mark I) installs the Rolls-Royce 250-C20S turbine engine and STC SA01878SE (Mark II) installs the Rolls-Royce 250-B17F/2 turbine engine. Improved overall performance and reliability as well as quieter operation are hallmarks of the engine modification. Both the Sierra fuel system modification and Soloy turbine upgrades are available for Cessna U206G, TU206G, 206H & T206H aircraft from 1977 models to present.

Sierra Industries has specialized in Cessna aircraft since 1983, holding more than 75 proprietary Citation modifications and products – which covers only part of the company’s 300 FAA supplemental type certificates.
