Overview

Whether your needs run from simple loose-parts kits to fully integrated solutions, CarlisleIT can build kits to your supplied drawings, to existing STCs or manufacturer service bulletins. We also offer kits for the many STCs we own. Researching complex system specifications, as well as sourcing, purchasing, and maintaining the many required components for the development of turnkey installation kits is at the heart of our commitment to servicing our customers.

Integrated Installations Kits

We design our installation kits to integrate the specific system being installed with the unique requirements of the customer's airframe type, and fabricate our kits to simplify the installation process. Each installation kit we build comes complete with appropriate components, per drawing specifications, and includes such items as cabling, wire harnessing, electronic and mechanical assemblies, annunciators, adaptors, and associated mounting hardware and fittings. To maintain tight control of kit parts inventory, all installation kit components are individually labeled and poly-bagged or shrink-wrapped in easy-to-transport packages.

Before shipping, qualified on-staff Quality Control Inspectors check each kit to make certain that all parts have been manufactured in strict accordance with industry standards and meet stringent system requirements. With the help of our in-house FAA certified DAR and DMIR personnel, kits are inspected as needed to ensure FAA compliance, and receive the appropriate conformity inspection tags and/or Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA).

Because we have over 25 years of experience supporting the aerospace industry with kitting solutions, you can be sure that our installation kits will streamline your installation process and that your avionics systems will work correctly the first time.

Service Bulletin Kits

CarlisleIT can assemble kits for manufacturer service bulletins to stream line the procurement and handling of the necessary parts. Let CarlisleIT simplify your supply chain and put the power of our experience, procurement and packaging logistics to work. Kits will arrive pre-packaged under a single part number with exactly what is needed to modify a single aircraft. No more unnecessary materials in the stock room or time consuming pulling of individual parts to perform modifications.

Hardware Kits

With our many years of experience working closely with avionics systems and airframe original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), CarlisleIT continues to meet the challenges of avionics installation provisioning by providing hardware kits that offer high quality components, give reliable performance, and are installation friendly.

Our hardware kits are developed to support both retrofit and forward fit avionics installation programs and conform to all ARINC and aerospace industry standards. To ensure on-time delivery, we maintain a comprehensive inventory of stocked parts as well as standard ARINC tray assemblies. Before final shipping, qualified our Quality Control Inspectors review kits to ensure they meet all drawing requirements and carry our manufacturer certificate of compliance.

Whether your program requires build-to-print or custom kit development, you can depend on our industry experience, product knowledge, engineering capabilities and flexible manufacturing to assist with your next commercial or military installation project.
