Unread post by hed » Fri May 01, 2020 8:42 pm

Hi guys, I know there are a number of US STC’s available to convert a 182 tricycle gear to taildragger, ie a 180. I know Rod Rawson in Florida has an oft-quoted STC but I have googled him extensively but cannot find a Weblink or contact. Does anyone have any leads please? Thanks Heye
