    Mentone Aero Club - September 2020

    Good, to many of the PRA Websites are broken or discontinued. Facebook (IMO) is ok for chatter but a website is the only way to post, properly share, and present archive info. Let me know if I can help. In the meantime I'm willing to post and share info for you. Bobby

    John: Gyro is being sold in Europe as ready to fly and as quick build option here in the US so assuming no changes needed for engine placement.

    Weight and Balance

    Thanks Leigh. Mfg told me that the cheek plates come drilled and the machine is already setup. Figured I would have to redo so no big deal. Club I belong to can help with this. Just trying to gain some understanding. I weigh 165.

    Weight and Balance

    Thanks for the response. I asked the mfg about this and was referred to specs, weight empty and max takeoff weight. I asked about cheek plate setup and he said that the plates are set for a pilot from 155 to 240 lbs. How can you derive arm/moment from CG and weight data?

    Weight and Balance

    I plan to purchase and build a single place gyro soon and know that the kit is setup for a pilot weight of 155 - 220 lbs. Once built should a hang test be done? Anything else that should be done as part of W/B to obtain airworthiness certificate?

    Jeff: We saw this while searching regs by it does not spell out that a student pilot can fly off the required time. We searched the FAR and parts 21 etc and could not find anything spelling it out. Bobby
