>From the Extra 300/L POH Section 9.10.1: The Extra 300/L can be operated in an additional two seat Acro III category. This category is defined by a MTOW of 950 kg (2095 lbs), a max. load factor of +/- 6g, and a Va of 158 KIAS. DJ Molny <djmolny at yahoo.com> wrote: Pete - The max weight for dual acro (+8/-8G) in my 300L is 1918 lbs. Empty weight is about 1525, leaving 393lbs useful load. Subtract two 170-lb "FAA Standard" pilots, and you have 53 lbs for gas (8.83 gal).

I have example empty weights and moments entered into the program, but specific airplane empty weights and moments can be entered. The spreadsheet is easy to use and if anyone is interested, let me know (it's free as I did it for fun). As to the S-2B question, a couple of 160lb pilots and 10 gallons of gas will keep the airplane in the acro category. I would be interested in hearing for an Extra 300 driver if their weight and balance envelope will allow two pilots in th acro envelope.

I know several schools do it all the time. Every time I run the numbers I come up overweight for aerobatics and occasionally over max gross. I think I know the answer.......but does anyone feel a little uneasy about the answer? Jack Stovall Pitt S2B --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo! Mail Plus - Powerful. Affordable.
