    I just saw the Airframes is working on an STC approved aluminum strut for PA 22/20. This might work for certified Super Pacers. If Airframes sells the aluminum strut and STC to a PA 22/20 owner the mechanic could combine the SP STC and Airframes STC and use aluminum struts for their certified Super Pacer. Airframes would have to leave the aluminum strut long so it cut be cut to size for the SP.

    If you build to the plans specs I have all aluminum struts available (experimental). I have made them for the for Bushmaster types with gross up to 2900 pounds. They are in either the Bushmaster style of attachment (sorta Decathlon), the SC style that have the 5/8" fork at each lower attach point or if angles are unknown a "universal" type of fitting can be used. I will also have the wing reinforcement parts pre made for the experimentals soon if interested.

    Several examples

    That gives me a lot to consider. It's good to know you have such a large MTOW. Sending a PM soon.
    Thanks
