    The Aerobat wing is the same as the Speedwing but with thicker wall tube spars and larger diameter lift struts. Here in the United Kingdom the gross weight is 911 lbs which on the Aerobat can be increased to 1020 lbs if stiffeners are fitted to horizontal and vertical tail surfaces.

    Fred, you would be more than welcome to visit us at Fen End Farm and have a flight in our Chipmunk, we are on the aviation charts and Skydemon. BTW thanks for the videos, very inspirational esp. as I also ski.
    Actually the wording of the LAA requirement is that I get at least an hour's flying experience in another Avid or Kitfox before I test fly mine. Just checked my logbook and I see that I already have 35mins in an Avid Speedwing back in 1992!!!

    New build flight test HELP
    Well after 25 years I finally finished building my mk3.25 Avid Speedwing, those in the UK may have read about it in the LAA magazine.
    The LAA have said I can do the test flying myself but first I have to get an hour in a similar type. Basically this means a 2-stroke powered Avid or Kitfox. Not many around these days so I am a bit stuck..
    If anyone can help please let me know, I don’t need to be P1 just do some handling and follow thoughts from the passenger seat.
    I am based in the UK and my airstrip is Fen End Farm 8 nm north of Cambridge, so if you want a new destination with accommodation if required you could come to me or I can fly to you in our Chipmunk. Either way you can get some time in a Chipmunk as a thank you..
