Micro Vortex Generators from Micro Aerodynamics, Inc. are available for a wide range of aircraft and can reduce stall speed, improve aileron response, improve cross wind control, and reduce landing and takeoff roll. The kits consist of vortex generators mounted on the wings, the horizontal stabilizer, and the vertical stabilizer. The generators are manufactured under FAA/PMA from 6063T6 aluminum and are curved to fit the contour of the wing. Included in the kits are installation tools, detailed drawings and instructions, templates for positioning VG's, spares,Loctite Depend adhesive and all the materials needed for the easy one-day installation.

Per the supplier: Yes, Micro VGs are STC approved for Cessna 172L. The VGs are located on the wings, the underside of the horizontal stabilizer, and on both sides of the vertical stabilizer. The VG kit is compatible with the leading edge cuff kits (Sportsman, Horton, Robertson, etc). Since the VGs work by energizing the airfoil you have, the combination reduces the stall speed from what it is with the modified wing, and in addition, it adds more crisp response to the elevator and rudder at those slow speeds.
Per the supplier: No. This product is not certified to change any weight carrying capacity in this aircraft.
Yes, the 337 form is included with the product.
Per the vendor: It depends on the aircraft. The registration number is required when special ordering this item to determine the qty req'd. They will span across the horizontal stab.
It is for the whole aircraft.
Per the manufacturer: "When an aircraft been modified in a way that results in additional wingspan such as with a WingX kit, Flint Tips, etc, we provide additional VGs and templates to accommodate this length at no additional charge if MENTIONED AT THE TIME OF THE ORDER."
These do not come painted unless the paint option is selected, They ship without paint,but they are alodined which is a coating to the raw aluminum to close the pores and prevent corrosion.
