Q:  My airplane is an F182P or F182Q built in France by Reims Aviation.  Can I incorporate your STC?

A:  Assembled under license from Cessna, these airplanes are essentially identical to their US built 182P and 182Q counterparts. We initially believed that this would require European EASA validation of our FAA STC. However, during the time this project was underway, the Type Certificate for the F182P and F182Q was transferred from Reims to Cessna, so the United States is now the State of Design and State of Manufacture. As a result, EASA has indicated (upon issuance of our EASA STC) that these airplanes may be approved on a case-by-case "minor mod" basis.  Please inquire if you need more information.  Meanwhile, sample flight manual supplements for these airplanes may be found in our "DOWNLOADS" section.
