    Post Heated Pitot Tubr

    I live in Cold Country and have a 1953 PA22/20. I am interested in any information available on a STC for a heated Pitot Tube.

    Thank you

    There are two STCs listed for the PA-22 on the Maintenance Data Depot. One of them is suppose to be in the public domain, however getting the data out of the FAA is like pulling teeth. I did get the data for SA1-386 after I threatened the FAA with a Freedom of Information Act request. The FAA won't issue a permission to use letter, but the data and drawings can be used as data for a field approval. Since you are a member of the club I can forward this data to you. Let me know if you are still interested.

    Steve,

    To my knowledge the only STC the club owns is for the installation of an Continental A65 in a Vagabond versus the standard Lycoming. STC SA1-386 was turned over to the FAA by the original owner stating that it was in the public domain. I have a redacted copy of the letter. I also have a copy of the drawings and the installation instructions that were submitted to get the original STC back in 1959. The company that own the other STC SA2142WE I believe is out of business and it's an orphan STC.
