“I purchased your speed kit approximately one year ago and must say that I am very pleased with the performance. I had the wing straps put on, then needed the aircraft for a few days. I noticed an honest
“I installed the Laminar Flow Kit six months ago. There were no problems. I could not believe the difference. My Arrow IV was relatively the same as others, and performed as you would expect… slightly less well than the advertisements lead you to believe. I live in Brazil, and do many
“Robin Thomas is not only the most conservative speed mod producer in the business (conservative with his numbers) he is the most honest. It seems like there are many impressive claims made by all the manufacturers but I see no one else other than Robin Thomas who makes a promise that if you’re not satisfied, no questions asked, you get your money back.”
“I bought the Laminar Flow Systems kit for my Seneca II 27 years ago. I recently ran across Robin, and he asked me how it was holding up. Twenty-seven years and no problems.
I basically wanted to see if my Seneca could ever make a 200 mph cruise. Now I have been exceeding that target on every flight. The kit has been trouble free… the only way I would know it was there is by the increased performance. I get approximately 200 feet per minute in climb increase and 15 knots in cruise. I know that I could save fuel instead of the extra speed, but I really enjoy the speed. I guess that explains why I have had the same plane for 30 years!”
“I want to thank you for sharing with me the experience of the Dulles 400 Efficiency Race. There is no doubt that your kit was responsible for our taking second place in the race. In the past, my Lance has flown just like a Lance, heavy on the controls. Now it is considerably more responsive, more like a Piper Arrow, instead of a Lance. This alone was worth the price of the kit. ”
“I installed the full Laminar Flow Systems kit on my Arrow II. The performance change has been incredible. Before I did the mods, I used to cruise at 130 knots, burning 11 gallons per hour. Now I regularly flight plan for 153 knots at 10.5 GPH. I can’t begin to explain how different the plane feels.”
“The biggest event to date was the installation of complete Laminar Flow Systems speed mod kit…My very best indicated airspeed had previously been 123 mph with the GPS confirming 105-107 knots ground speed in little or no wind conditions at 2475 RPM. My first flight after installing the Laminar Flow Systems was in cold temperatures here in St. Louis. I climbed to pattern altitude at 950 FPM, leveled off to cruise climb around 123 MPH and before I was ready to throttle back to cruise, I realized I had “busted” the 200 feet safety margin I use to stay below the class B ceiling of 1700’…I leveled off and watched in amazement as the airspeed needled swiftly climbed to tailwind…On a recent
