Wikipedia says (must be up to date as it mentions a short hop on 7/20/2020) the empty weight is 1,800 pounds. LOL.

The Raptor website was updated from 1800 to 2300 pounds about a year ago. Apparently the current estimated future weight....

What won't be happening this year is Peter demonstrating performance anywhere near as good as a Cirrus. I wonder if he knows this yet.

Peter is now doing maths! Unfortunately, he is no good at it...


Why has it taken him a week to move some ballast and add some to the winglet?

Airplanes are designed to gross weight. The empty weight in the flight manual is almost always fiction. The customer options determines the empty weight.
