I am helping a friend with his airplane PA-28-161. It is stuck in annual right now because it is missing documentation for aftermarket wing tips that were installed before he bought it. The Manufacturer is no longer around and we cannot find the STC paperwork that we need to make the airplane legal. Any info on where I can find this documentation would be much appreciated. Basically we either have to get the STC documented or the wing tips will have to be replaced to make the aircraft legal.

The STC Holder is Madras Air Service


From the placards inside the wingtips I could make out that your Wingtip Kit Serial # is 0040.

Kit manufacture date- 4-1-1993.

Thanks in advance.
