The AeroAcoustics Aircraft Systems, Inc. Aircraft Payload Extender II (APE II) allows you to operate your Caravan at increased takeoff weights and extract maximum profitability from the best single engine utility aircraft flying.  The Caravan APE II can increase your payload capacity up to 27%.

By installing the APE II on your Caravan, the maximum takeoff gross weight of your aircraft is increased by 362 lb: from 8000 lb to 8362 lb on the 208.  Optionally, the APE II can increase the maximum water landing weight from 7800 lb to 8000 lb.

The APE II modification is a small aerodynamic device consisting of two 16" long stall fences/strakes attached to the wing leading edge just outboard of the landing light.

The total installed weight of the kit is less than 3 lb and it can literally be installed in the amount of time it takes you to refuel your aircraft and eat lunch.
