Having this conversion carried out to a STC
gives International credibility to this modification.
Advantages to Modifying the undercarriage
to tail wheel configuration are:
- More robust undercarriage assembly that is better suited
to operations from unimproved airstrips.
- Increased propeller clearance making the propeller less
susceptible to gravel and stone damage during taxi and
- The aircraft is more stable when operating on rough
and undulating terrain
