Cessna 172 Straight Tail

October 29, 2015

Dick Smith, the owner of the C180 which was used in FAA STC certification flights, reported after his first flight with the VGs in place; "Simply Incredible! I was doing steep turns at 50 mph and without VGs I’d have precipitated an accelerated stall. I couldn’t believe how responsive the ailerons were at that speed. It‘s like a completely different airplane in the way it feels and handles. Stalls are much more placid and control response is there all the way".
