That STC makes for one great little t/d speeder. Just add 160 hp Lycoming, full fairings and you have a 190 mph hot rod. But VNE remains at 194 mph

I've thought about it but the boss lady prefers the training wheel under the nose. Oh well!

Sounds like a much better idea then a C 150 T/D. Is the STC fully approved by TC. Does anyone know of a Canadian example, I like it a lot.

I'm not up to speed on which STCs TCCA will accept but I have used American FAA approved STCs in other areas on my Grumman AA1A and no problems. On this one the main gear mounting assembly . which is mounted on the rear of the spar is swapped sides and mounted on the front. And of course the tailwheel is added.

With the wide gear ground handling is very good.
