WELLINGTON, KS (February 3, 2020) – Air Plains Services, a world leader in general aviation engine and avionics upgrades, has launched an online store for many of its STC and PMA parts including its recently PMA certified airboxes for Cessna 180-series aircraft. The store is at https://shopairplains.com.
“We love talking with our customers and we’ll always be available to chat, but many already know exactly what they need and want an easy way to order from us,” said Katie Church, head of marketing for Air Plains. “We’ll be adding more and more parts to the web store as well as apparel and other supplies.”
The STC parts support the company’s popular 180, 260 and 300 horsepower engine upgrades for Cessna 172, 180 and 182 aircraft which can be installed by Air Plains or shipped worldwide. The XP line of upgrades consists of a 300 hp upgrade for Cessna 182 H through R model aircraft, a 300 hp upgrade for Cessna 180s, a 300 hp upgrade for Cessna retractable gear models R182, and a 180 hp upgrade for a large number of Cessna 172 models.
More recently, the company added STCs for a 260 hp upgrade for Cessna 182 S and T model aircraft, a 260 hp upgrade for Cessna RG182s, and another 180 hp upgrade for Cessna 172R models.
In January, Air Plains announced PMA approval from the FAA to manufacture airboxes for Cessna 180s produced since 1960 (C thru K), Cessna 182s produced from 1959 thru 1986 (B thru R), and Cessna 188s produced from 1966 thru 1975 (thru B). This airbox is also eligible for installation on French Built (REIMS F182) 182s.
In addition to the new PMA airboxes, Air Plains also offers standard, like-new, repaired airboxes for Cessna 172s, 180s and 182s, usually in stock for immediate shipment.
Air Plains offers other replacement PMA parts not only for its XP upgrade kits, but for a variety of aircraft. For more information about parts not listed at the online store, call 1-800-752-8481 or +1-620-326-8904 or send an email to [email protected].
