introducing the latest addition to airframes alaska: Performance STOL Flaps
On August 1, 2017, Airframes Alaska dotted the i's and crossed the t's on a deal to buy Performance STOL, creators of experimental and certified double-slotted "Keller" flaps for Cubs and Cub-type aircraft. Over those first weeks in August we moved manufacturing up from Oregon and set up flap production at our hangars on Birchwood Airport in Chugiak, AK. Want to know more? Give us a call at 907-331-4480.

Why Performance stol flaps?
reduced stall speed
Pilots see an average 4 to 5 MPH reduction in stall speed depending on the conditions. That means slower, shorter landings and takeoffs.
improved nose visibility
With Keller flaps deployed, lower airspeed does not equal a higher angle of attack. Pilots fly at a flatter deck angle without increasing their airspeed.
Increased safety margin
Safety is the bottom line. You fly slower, land and take off shorter, and (most importantly) see where you're going while you're doing it.
