CiES CC284022 Series & STC SE02511SE Update
CiES Inc produces a new technology for measuring fuel quantity in aircraft. The CiES patented fuel sender technology is a digital non-contact method designed exclusively for aircraft and the aircraft operating environment. We have STC’d this technology to replace existing automotive or agricultural fuel senders used in most general aviation aircraft.
This recent expansion of our AML STC now covers the majority of active single engine aircraft and adds to our growing approval for popular twin-engine aircraft. We expect to be adding the Cessna 300 and 400 twins, DE Havilland Beaver and Otter and Cessna Caravan in the coming months.
CiES is the world-wide aviation industries overwhelming choice for fuel quantity senders. Over 4,750 aircraft in the field fly with CiES digital fuel quantity sensing systems. CiES fuel quantity systems are included on all new Cirrus, Quest, Vulcanair, Tecnam, Gippsland, Pipestrel, CAIGA, Octens, Guanyi & Jiu Cheng with more manufacturers to be added in the coming months.
CC284022 Series Fuel quantity senders have amassed over 790,000 hours of operation in OEM aircraft and have an outstanding record of a handful of in service removals with over 18,000 senders fielded. CiES has the experience and capability to ensure that GA aircraft fuel quantity can and will be accurate in the general aviation aircraft of the future.
Scott Philiben, CiES President, said “It is a tragedy that General Aviation pilots have suffered with marginal fuel quantity systems. The situation is so bad that many pilots don’t trust or rely on this FAA required fuel quantity instrument. Aircraft fuel quantity systems were really crying out for a new and better technology.”
The CiES digital fuel quantity system utilizes an advanced technology sensor system that allows repeatable, reliable and accurate measurement of fuel in the aircraft fuel tank. This patented sensor system allows fuel measurements down to 100th of a gallon. The non-contact measurement method eliminates electrical contact with the fuel that is prevalent in resistive or capacitance systems. Eliminating electricity from the fuel tank is safer and insures a lifetime of trouble-free operation providing stable, consistent fuel level output.
Founded in 2010, CiES’s mission is to create the best aircraft systems for aviation and other high value markets. With an enviable portfolio of OEM customers and platforms worldwide CiES is the leading manufacturer of fuel quantity systems for GA Aircraft. Continuing a tradition started with our introduction of our first digital fuel quantity system, CiES is committed to developing innovative products at affordable prices for all aircraft manufacturers & pilots.
