I have the STC from Eckstar, Inc. on my T210M

I contact them by email Ramon Torres <>

The Eckstar 4000 STC is applicable to the T210M only. It increases the takeoff gross weight to 4000 lbs, landing weight remains the same @ 3800 lbs.

There is no physical modification to the aircraft , only paper work change in the flight manual and installation of two placards. You will need to fill out an FAA form 337.

Price is $398.00, we accept personal check, mastercard and visa.

I thought the company you're looking for was Flint Aero at www.flintaero.com. But my research shows that T210K, L and M models already have a gross weight of 3800.
This mod adds 32.5 gallons of fuel and extends the wing span 26 inches so there may be a problem getting into a smaller hangar.
The estimated time of installation is 50-60 man hours and the cost of the kit for the T210 series is $9,798.
Then I thought that Wing X Stol had a gross weight increase for the 210 series but it doesn't .
I'll continue to search

Per Steve Ells:

Hi Kent; I could not find the STC that our reader wanted on the STC listing from the FAA. This may explain why:
Our apologies for the inconsistent spreadsheet updates recently, and for the continued inconsistency as we address some workload issues. Additionally, we have been aware the past year that the model list in the spreadsheet is truncated, so please take that into consideration.
It was posted on the STC page of the FAA regulatory address.

In other words, it's not listed but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist--it appears to mean that the FAA doesn't have enough staff to do its job, at least as it relates to keeping the STC list current.

Dan,
If I remember it right, the company was RT AEROSPACE.
The STC was not very popular because it increased the takeoff weight from 3800 to 4000 pounds, but the maximum landing weight remained in 3800 pounds, so 33 gallons of fuel were required to be burned before landing.
