Q:  What am I paying for, and how much will it cost?

A:  You are paying for a legal "major alteration" to your airframe. It allows an additional 150 - 160 pounds of useful load (to 3110 pounds ramp, 3100 pounds maximum gross takeoff weight). Costs for the paperwork are related to the major investments that were required for a multi-year FAA certification program.

The price for the STC package is US $750.00 on a one-time purchase basis. That equates to about $ 5 per pound of useful load. Documents will be completed for you and sent via E-mail.

The STC will add value to your airplane and may be transferred to any new owners (at no charge) for the life of the airplane.
