Cessna Skylane 182H
Wren STOL Conversion (260hp IO-470)
|The Wren STOL Skylane
was and still is the ultimate STOL Skylane. Developed in the
1960's by Robertson, the Wren STOL conversion is an extremely
labor intensive conversion that gives the Skylane a full span Fowler
flap, using "Wren's Teeth" on top of the wing to add roll control.
These "Wren's teeth" look like
giant moving VG's and rotate with the ailerons. The Wren also
features a canard with elevators, allowing the Wren to climb with
remarkably flat pitch compared to the standard Skylane. The Wren
was heavily used in Southeast Asia in the Air America efforts.
N2060X also has the 260 hp Continental IO-470 upgrade - with better
takeoff and climb performance on virtually identical fuel flows, and
the capability of running lean of peak (much more efficiency).
This particular aircraft was refurbished by Todd Peterson in 1987,
including all new glass, fiberglass tips, paint and interior. The
WREN 460 Stol conversion was done at this point.
All specifications provided are believed to be accurate as of
but are subject to verification.
