Installation can be completed easily using our reusable Locating Fixture tool. Since the tool is reusable, a single purchase may be all that is required, depending on your fleet size and how quickly you plan to complete installation. A single aircraft can have a set of Microvanes installed in less than one day, with the longest process being to simply wait for the adhesive to cure.
Metro does not provide product installation directly but looks for partners to accomplish this, or can provide a training workshop for operators who will install Microvanes themselves. For the most current list of the Lockheed Martin authorized C-130 Service Centers please refer to the Lockheed Martin website or access the following link:
For each customer, a customized Service Bulletin is provided for installation. Generic installation service bulletins may be downloaded here:
