Recent market reports show used aircraft prices rising over the past year, making modifications and upgrades a good value compared to other options.

“Not only can you upgrade your aircraft for less money than buying new or even going with a used model, you can also make it fit your specific requirements based on the way you fly,” Church said. “We have eight engine STCs, new propeller STCs, an array of avionics options with custom panels, custom interiors, PMA parts, and expert advice based on your requirements and budget.”

Today, Air Plains offers eight engine upgrade STCs, five of which are branded Extreme Performance, or XP upgrades: two STCs for the 180hp XP upgrade for the 172; a 300hp XP upgrade for the Cessna 180; a 300hp XP upgrade for the Cessna 182; a 300hp XP upgrade for the Cessna 182RG; a 260hp upgrade for both the Cessna 182S and T models; and a 260hp upgrade for the Cessna 182RG.

Air Plains has also added new avionics products and is an authorized avionics dealer for Dynon, Avidyne, Appareo, L3, Aspen, TruTrak, Guardian, and Genesys Aerosystems. The company also specializes in custom avionics panels giving the cockpit a “like-new” appearance.
