VariEze front seat size?


Recommended Posts



I read in CP5 that the VariEze can acomodate two 6'4'' individuals.. Is this actually the case? I am concerned mostly about the front seat, being 6'2'', 200Lbs. With a O-200, alternator but no started, how much weight would be left for the passenger? What is actually practiced?

Dan -


A compilation of reported weights for over 100 VariEze from the CSA archives shows empty weights ranging from 550 lb to 1050 lb, with an average of 697 lb. Some folks fly above the 1050-lb handbook maximum, perhaps rationalizing that the current 2.5G-restriction recommended by RAF for all VariEzes allows for a higher gross weight (it does not).
