What is the Max weight for a single seat trike in RAA rego?

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure you'll find the term "Maximum Suspension Weight" only applies to Hang Gliders, not Trikes. Trikes, as far as I've seen in Oz have always been given a MAUW or MTOW rating which includes the weight of the wing.


As for MTOW of a single seat trike, that depends on which CAO it falls under and can be a grey area.


Home built single seaters made from home built parts are 95.10 = 300kg maximum MTOW


Some say that Factory Kit and Factory Built single seat trikes are 95.32 = 600kg maximum MTOW (used to be 450kg until April 2011)


The Tech Manager / Ops Manager of HGFA/RAA (as applicable) will confirm which applies for your situation and if any of what I've written here is correct.
