The Door Steward is a product improvement installation that greatly improves the operation of the aircraft doors. The installation consists of a gas spring attached to brackets mounted on the door and the airframe. The gas spring gently but firmly opens the door to the full open position. The gas spring while in the open position protects the aircraft door from unexpected closings by providing resistance to wind gusts. In addition, the gas spring is extremely simple and reliable. The weight of each door installation is ½ Lb. Closing the door compresses the gas spring. The gas spring can easily be removed from its brackets to facilitate removal of the aircraft door, replacement of a defective gas spring or to conduct other maintenance.
