The composite material pod has a hinged door which opens widely for easy access to the storage area and is held open by a gas strut. The door fastens securely for flight with three positive latches. The installation also includes a door open warning annunciator. The upper portion of the cargo pod surface includes an excellent standing area for maintenance activities. The fuel filler and EPU access are unaffected. The cargo pods are ideal for utility missions, tourism and corporate passenger transport.
