  1. It can be done by subtracting the weight already in the list, but I would like to get a re-weigh any weigh 🙂 as it hasnt been done for 30 or 40 years.
  2. My wife and I plus full fuel puts the Archer on the nose-heavy limit so I keep some water in the luggage compartment. Am thinking about removing the ADF which I never use, it is heavy.
  3. Many aircraft also have a seat structural limit. It might be 110 or 120 kg and is based on the seat not collapsing at a certain g force vertical deceleration.
  4. In the hands of a weekend pilot a $40-50k Piper or Cessna will not be more expensive to run than an RAA type, unless poor selection or plain bad luck. I should add ...I use a LAME to do the maintenance either way. Have owned both options.
  5. The yellow and white twins the Flying Doctor used were very smart.

  7. I wasn't aware but was recently told that Abe Lincoln was as divisive as Trump. He wanted to do what half the electors didn't want and he pushed it through. It led to a civil war. He is very highly regarded today but apparently was viewed like Trump in his own time. And of course assassinated as a result.
