Wipaire is an authorized distributor and installation center for Wing X STOL tip extensions for Cessna 180, 182, and 185. This modification is approved with various previously installed leading edge modifications as well as vortex generators.
WING-X STOL will increase your flight performance by as much as 30% and your gross takeoff weight by 50 to 400 Lbs depending on the models. You can now carry that extra passenger or payload and still have great performance!
Improve your aircraft performance by adding more than three feet to the wingspan or approx. 12.4 square feet of wing area to your aircraft. “More Wing is More Lift it’s that simple”. The Wing-X STOL modification has a specially engineered wing reinforcement along the main spar. This modification increases the overall strength of the wing and allows for an important gross weight increase on most models.
