These fairing kits consist of four wing strut fairings that slip over the lift struts. These fairings are better than those manufactured by Cessna because they are made of fiberglass rather than a royalite type material, that bends and cracks after a short time on the aircraft. Fiberglass has the following advantages over a royalite type material, it is approximately six times stronger and 12 times stiffer, it resists ultra violet light and weathers better, and it keeps its chemical composition intact much longer. With all these advantages these will probably be the last lift strut fairings that will ever have to be installed on the aircraft. And even should these fairings be damaged through some unforeseen circumstances, being made of fiberglass, they will be easily repairable. These fairings are all split so they slip over the lift strut thus eliminating the need to disconnect the lift strut to install the fairing. Cessna manufactured split lift strut fairings for only one model aircraft, and they cost $1,054.00 per ship set. If Cessna manufactured fiberglass split lift strut fairings they would charge at least $1,700.00 per ship set. With the average cost of Aircraft development lift strut fairings, it is the same as getting a 75% discount off equivalent Cessna lift strut fairings. Aircraft Development recommends, as with all plastics, they be painted for better UV protection. These kits have a FAA identicality approval and are manufactured under a FAA PMA authority.
