    What happened with the MTOW change for RAAus

    Possibly not as it is a registered design..the S20 raven is 1320lbs which is 600 kg

    No from what I was told you wont be able to do that any more. I asked him specifically about it. I am pretty sure that is the situation now..everything before is legacy. I am pretty sure I didnt get it wrong . RAA is 600kg max you will not be able to bring anything that can go over that into RAA. With a weight increase then like the Rans example I could not do it..and I cant do it now apparently

    Weight Increase to 750kg's IMMINENT

    refer to this thread for the facts

    The above rules are to stop for example a C152 and a seat being taken out to make fit inside RAA rules

    Speaking to my contact today. It will still be a long while before anything will come through ..if it does. But there are caveats. For example if the weight limit is 760 kg then any aircraft design weight above this will not be allowed it must be 760kg or less. So for example I am looking at a Rans S21 its design weight is 820kg even though I would fly it at 760kg MTOW its will not be allowed. Case in point is any of those Jabs that are 700kg legal and are being registered in RAA and being flown at the 600kg MTOW is currently fine there will be no more accepted under this "legacy" rule. So anything that was not designed to be max for the weight increase....when it comes....will not be allowed. So any new aircraft even now apparently can not have a design weight of over 600kg if it is to be registered as RAA. The only way forward is to go RPL and VH rego. So a Rans S21 will need to be VH rego and a RPL to fly it minimum. That wont be a problem IF CASA keep to their Basic medical they are promising soon with just the unmodified commercial Austroads licence

    I extended mine by 60mm. Yes I now remember the talk about it. The bracket stiffiners can foul the steering rod when the nosewheel is fully extended..thats another thing to look at. I ground mine out a little I think I ha to take about 1mm off them so it didnt rub on that bracket. My brackets are different the new bracket goes right around now in front of the leg. Its the side area you need to look at Tom..it will be a problem when you are flying. thanks for the reminder Bob

    RAA have applied for it....BUT there are quite a lot of processes to go through yet and it will be a long way off due to all the processes. Dont be holding your breath

    The short pedals are the issue as well. I extended my pedals and its just fabulous now..just have to squeeze them for rudder control. Release your cables at the joiner plates and make sure the rudders move freely then check the pedals are not clamped to hard. if all of this is ok then I suggest extending your pedals. I found mine were a little hard to push in standard form but the extensions are great. i have big feet though so I needed to extend them as my angle of my feet were applying the brakes

    So where did you see this or hear it? Until you see it written down somewhere I would treat it as just a furfey.
  12. did that Hank..they told me to piss off...so of course that pissed me off so then I have been having my own little war with them
  13. I got no email to say they were which is also what they say. One would think being a member of FF for 30 years...one of the first and with almost half a million points maybe a ph call or a sms to the correct ph number they had on file for me after the email bounced.
  14. Yeah well Qantas the pricks just cancelled my 430,000 points. Its theft
  15. The new spec is actually 8.33 khz spacing
