THE WING In order to increase the fuel capacity, the wing has been fitted with an additional integral fuel tank between ribs no 5-9 on both left and right wings. In the right and left leading edge, between ribs 6-7, the wing has been fitted with recessed landing and taxi lights for night operations. The wing was strengthened in the tip area, for optional wing-tip tanks. Tip Rib no. 15 has been fitted with strobe and navigational lights for night operations. Tubing was added for fuel supply system and for the electric fuel pressure pup installation. The fuel filler caps for the aux fuel system were modified to a less prone to leak style. CONTROL SERVICES The fabric skins of aileron, elevator and rudder have been improved and fitted with aluminum skins and the attach brackets and balance weights were modified for the different skins. THE LANDING GEAR The Russian style wheels of the main landing gear, which were with pneumatic drum brakes, were replaced with Cleveland wheels using hydraulic disk brakes and standard western tires. The nose wheel assembly was replaced with a Cleveland wheel with standard Western tires. This above improvements required the modification of the wheel axles and brake system. CONTROLS The aircraft has been fitted with rudder steering bars that allow a wider adjustment range for pilot comfort. The aileron and elevator centering springs were eliminated.
