The UL101 Detector performed quite well. Each of the squadrons received their units and quickly went to work. The time to leak-check the entire fleet was drastically reduced because of the UL101, said one of the engineers located at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station in Florida. The speed of testing was important for our fleet readiness and training schedules.
The F-5 Squadron listed the UL101 Intrinsically Safe Air Audit Kit as required support equipment for the one-time cabin air supply duct test. This UL101 Kit is available in the military supply system under NSN 6635 01 534 2512 or direct from CTRL under part number 000038.
Test procedures are being developed for periodic duct leak testing by the F-5 Squadron; similar procedures were published by the AV-8 Harrier and C-130J aircraft teams.
