Q:  What if I need to land right away, or at weights above 2950 pounds?

A:  Then just do it. In any emergency situation, or for another compelling reason, you should land in an overweight condition and as smoothly as possible on as smooth a surface as can be found.  Our FAA approved Instructions for Continued Airworthiness, supplied with the STC, will guide you to any necessary inspections required.

This question should also be asked by owners of later 182R, 182S, 182T and T182T models. Apparently, Cessna has not provided any guidance on this subject. Our ICA is published on this website, and owners of these later airplanes are welcome to adopt it unofficially, but not as FAA approved data. The ICA is only FAA approved when STC SA03608AT is incorporated in a Cessna 182P or 182Q airplane.
