    Three seat PA18

    Hello,
    I have met a PA18 150 hp being restored in an aeronautical workshop here in Italy.
    Inhave been told it’s a three seater with some 180 lb capacity in the luggage space. The square cross member behind the back sest can be removed and a seat placed behind. The luggage space is further extended rear in the fuselage.

    How can this be a PA18 ? What modifications have been inttoduced?
    A. Different wing fitting angle?
    B. Different wing centre position?
    How would CoG be affected by such overload?

    Thanks for commenting.

    P. S. I am quite doubtful of this “gadget”

    It’s an old Borer STC- basically just an x-brace under the baggage floor and seat belt tabs... Super common on Alaska cubs... Several threads on here discussing it: http://www.supercub.org/forum/showth...sion-STC-SA5-7

    My Top Cub has the third seat STC, and even has a seat belt in that position, but I would not want to ride back there!
