Rick McGuire: Cessna 340A Pilot

     I am a 17,000 hours pilot and have been flying since 1969. I have airline experience and have been a 135 chief pilot. I have had a CFI-AIM since the 70's. You name it, I’ve flown it.

     I am going to address first the yaw factor elimination involved with the 340. Without the strakes, I continually worked on eliminating the yaw for passenger comfort. (Constant rudder input). As you probably are aware, the longer the aircraft the longer the aircraft the (Click to Read Full Testimonial)

 

Jerry Temple: President of Jerry Temple Aviation & Cessna Pilot

     I sold a 1980 340A RAM VI to a great customer from Mexico.  We did some training Prior to DFW Aero Mechanix (Juan Oviedo) installing strakes and then another trip.  I flight plan 190KT and tell customer to expect at 65% in the high teens/low twenties to expect 190-202KT. We got 4-8 kts better with strakes. Photos attached of before (Click to Read Full Testimonial)

Barry Farrah: Cessna 441 Conquest II Pilot

     Most notable has been the improvement in the stability of the aircraft from the perspective of passengers. I have passengers who regularly were in the aircraft before the strakes were installed. Upon their first flight after the strakes were installed they conveyed to me that it felt more stable. This was primarily noticed on short final.
