You can now add the dual strake modification to your Cessna 335, Cessna 340, or Cessna 340A. As with the dual strake modification for the Cessna 400 series, the dual strake for Cessna 335/340/340A streamlines the airflow under the empennage of the aircraft which results in decreased drag, a safer more stable flight, and an increase of 4 - 6 knots. While results in improved airspeed vary pilot to pilot and aircraft to aircraft, the added safety factor that you'll receive from adding dual strakes to your 335/340/340A is unwavering.
