Over APE Installations Worldwide

The AeroAcoustics Aircraft Systems, Inc. Aircraft Payload Extender STOL provides landing field length reductions up to 25%.  Certified performance is provided in an Airplane Flight Manual Supplement.  Installation of the APE STOL provides operators with increased flexibility–particularly into and out of short fields.

The APE STOL modification is a unique aerodynamic device attached to the trailing edge flaps.  The kit adds less than 1 lb to the aircraft empty weight and can easily be installed in just a few hours.  Operators can continue to fly the 402C with the same procedures utilized before the APE STOL installation and operate at increased weights into and out of short airfields.

The APE STOL works in conjunction with our previously certified APE XL system.  The APE STOL equipped 402Cs provide an increased maximum takeoff gross weight of 7210 lb for the 402C.  If not already installed on the aircraft, the APE XL system will be included with the kit.

The advantage of the APE STOL is that you get the increased payload capability of the APE XL (ie 7210 lb MTGW, 7200 lb MLW) but have performance that is better than the basic unmodified 402C.  More...
