SOLD - 1965 Cessna Skylane 182H - SOLD
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 9/13/2011, but are subject to verification.
