Hi,

Does anyone know the precise (or approximate) weights of the passenger seats in a C207?

Trying to work out the useful load for one converted for freight...

Cheers!

Crikey what a question! And for C207 at that i dare say some will scratch their heads and wonder what is a C207 anyway I was instructor rated on this death trap - to answer your question our seats were in the region of 10kg for a basic leather seat not especially weighty as this thing is of course certified to carry eight people although I operated this at 5000ft elevations and anymore than two people and full fuel used to struggle baddly.

as a ball part figure - best wishes flying it!

Used to haul skydivers in a 207. 6 skydivers on a load, up to 10,000'.

Now for the interesting part............ on the jump run, 3 inside the door, 3 outside the door, major buffet, got reasonably interesting when they stepped off :E

Ahhhhh G-PARA, where are you now ?

Cheers mate. Evidently I don't have a 207 seat to take out and weigh.
