Co-Pilot Door Modification
The co-pilot door for the Cessna 206 adds an immense amount of safety and convenience for the front seat passengers of your aircraft by allowing a convenient third way of entering or exiting the aircraft.
This feature is especially desirable when docking on the right side of the aircraft in the case of seaplane operation, and it is also extremely valuable as a way to exit the aircraft in an emergency where the pilot door is jammed or blocked.
The door is manufactured from carbon reinforced composite material and utilizes Cessna manufactured hinges and latches to appear identical to the pilot door. An opera window is installed between the new door and the rear double doors. The door is comprised of an outer aluminum skin and a fiberglass composite inside, with an inner "Royalite", formed plastic panel.
Portions of your original interior are cut and added to the inside door panel to maintain the inside decor. An armrest and grab handle are also installed. The outside is painted to blend the new door into the fuselage so the outside looks factory original.
"Wip" Tip Modification
"Wip" Tips are a valuable and attractive modification to add to your Cessna 206. There are several improvements this will bring to your flying experience.
First, the "Wip" Tip extends the wings by 18 inches. By extending the wings you get increased performance of your aircraft. Our "Wip" Tips increase the rate of climb and reduce the take off and landing distances. If you have ever made a takeoff on a hot, muggy summer day, you know how critical the last two knots of airspeed are. "Wip" Tips make a big difference in helping you on your way. At the same time it will save on fuel cost between 1 and 2 percent.
It is also important to know our "Wip" Tips increase your flying stability at low speeds as well as increase safety margins in all phases of flight. Stall speeds are also significantly reduced. There are several other improvements this "Wip"Tip modification will bring to your flying experience which you can hear about when you call us at 651.451.1205

Cessna 206 IO-550 Engine Upgrade
