    Part 103 Nomogram?

    Would this require an STC

    Hello All, I have a quick question that I figured someone on here would know. Lets say I wanted to remove the front seat on a Cessna 172, 175, 182 and use the seat rails as mounting points for something far lighter than the seat and the human that would sit in it and thus those rails would be...

    Boku can you make one of these next?

    Bob, I know you have the FES option on your HP24, but I remember a while back you entertained the thought of a Pod and boom Bowlus'ish glider with a shorter span able to use some of the existing wing molds from the HP24. Curious if you could lean more toward an 12 Meter smaller glider with the...
