'I got my muffler modified by CKT recently and have to say I am absolutely delighted with the work. A quality company to deal with too. The mod was to the outside edges which now follow the curve of the fuselage and cowling.'

'We now have the first - very encouraging - results of the noise level in combination with a SeaRey. It was an astonishing 65,2 dBA! Since the German regulations are unfortunately tighter than in the remaining european countries we were happy having achieved such a positive result!'
