VH GCQ Increased Cockpit Weights

VH GQC has had an increase in cockpit load approved when operating in special category. When operating in “Special Category” Aerobatic manoeuvres except spins are not permitted and a functional G meter must be fitted to the aircraft. Maximum Load Factor in “Special Category” is 3.8g.  If this is accidently exceeded the aircraft must be inspected by a person rated “Component Replacement” or greater for wood/steel tube aircraft before further flight. The aircraft may continue to operate as previously in “Normal Category” with the original pilot weight limits.  The cockpit will be placarded for both Categories. A Specil Category Placard will be fitted to the aircraft
