They've been administered by the LAA for 30 years and nearly 50 are registered. Everyone I've asked so far has come up with different figures, all of which keep it with CofG limits (just), but none of which have any explanation!
Sorry for the delay replying, Sooty25.
Let me understand this a little better (please forgive me):
The LAA have administered this design for 30 years, and there are "nearly 50 of these aircraft registered".
May I ask how many of the "nearly 50 registered" aircraft actually have an LAA PtF?
Of these, if there are no "official figures for crew and fuel tank arms" from the CG Datum
(My bold italic) Then how come they have an LAA PtF?
There must be some confusion here (probably by me!) because an LAA-approved design must surely have CG arms for these variables to determine the W&B during use? But perhaps the design CG position does not vary with pilot/fuel load, only the weight; hence my interest. This link
gives links to the LAA W&B schedule requirements for all aircraft on their fleet, about a quarter of the way down the page.
It's not a Cri-Cri is it?
