War Aircraft Replicas half-scale Sea Fury. At 6' tall and 190 pounds and wearing a bulky winter flying jacket, I could barely "dress" into the cockpit. It would need a completely new seat to accommodate an emergency parachute. Bail-out would be almost impossible except in straight and level flight. A WAR Sea Fury pilot would be far wiser to invest in a Ballistic Recovery System.

Once told my wife I didn't have room for a parachute in the Fly Baby.

I said, "If anything happens, I'll just have to bend over and kiss my butt goodbye."

She said, "If you've got room to do that, you've got enough room for a parachute..."

Erkki seems to have collected all my designs from 2007 onwards.

This even was recommended for a funding in 2009.
