Max 6G Pull + Acro Restriction Removal process!
In this episode we unlock the full potential of the RV-14; Sharing the process of removing the #aerobatic restriction, which was a part of the initial certificate of airworthiness. This airplane checks off a lot of boxes – it is a great IFR platform, but also being capable of aerobatics, and #tailwheel configured was a bit part of the appeal.
I am proud to be a member of the Canadian Aviation Museum (formerly CH2A). They are a not-for-profit organization that anybody can visit, and (almost) any pilot can join and fly the planes.
Please consider sharing their link, visiting the museum in Windsor, and/or sending a small donation to help them keep our historic warbirds flying!
And here’s the play list to some of the best content I’ve produced with Luke: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJ…
Here’s some additional context from Luke, about exactly what we are doing, and why we are doing it: In Canada, Transport Canada requires an amateur built aircraft to undergo what is known as a “simplified one-off aerobatic demonstration”. Since the airworthiness of an amateur built airplane is entirely dependant on the standards left to the builder. TC provides a straightforward check of items to be completed first to obtain a special flight permit which allows a specifically qualified individual to carry out the aerobatic demonstration flight. The guidance provided is found in Airworthiness Manual Advisory (AMA) No. 549.101A. It should be noted that this process is specific to Canada. Although not required in the USA, it is highly recommended that a properly qualified aerobatic pilot perform a similar validation flight of the full envelope characteristics of an amateur built airplane.
