This sturdy step stool is made of oak veneer over hardwood and provides a spacious 11"x11" square standing area. The stool is 16" high and features non-skid strips on the standing area. The precision crafted stool opens and closes easily and measures only 2"D x 12"W x 19"L when folded for storage in baggage compartment or under the seat of your aircraft. Weighs only 4lbs. Lightweight, compact, and very strong, this stool is idea for use around general aviation aircraft.
I purchased this step stool from ACS in 2010. It is remarkably sturdy and provides the right height to check the fuel on a 172 (that does not have the wing steps). It stores easily under the back seat or on the side of the baggage compartment. It's been opened and closed more than a few times in 3 years and not always on a cement surface. When one of the fittings came loose the manufacturer replaced the stool for the cost of postage.
This is one handy little stoolong for high winged aircrsft without steps. I would recommend it even if you do have steps since it is a lot easier than hanging onto the struts
