Thanks everyone for your help with this. I have now sold my Piper archer so i’m on the hunt for another plane. Sounds like i could make it work, on my archer i slid the seat to the back side of the seat rail stop and it helped a lot, sounds like a little modification could be possible. Is the pilot seat articulating? Was that an option. Also from pictures the seats look like they have very thick foam that could be changed, maybe it’s just the pictures though.
It looks like Dean Siracusa is brokering a couple of planes right now also, N2976T looks nice. What i would love is a plane that needs avionics and paint though, i really enjoy upgrading things. Anyone know of something for sale that is decent mechanically but needs some cosmetics?
I’m all over the place for my next purchase, i have a thing for navions, i really like the meyers for the speed, heavy duty landing gear for off airport and i always dream about entering some of these sport air racing events. Then there is the rational choice with a cessna 182/206.
