Brief Description:  Wing Planform and Structure

The aircraft will be using a wing derived from the two-seat Vision aircraft with planform and airfoil revised to suit this aircrafts mission. With the pending legislative changes I am planning for a non-LSA aircraft but am keeping the LSA design as a backup. The LSA complient design will have a lot more wing area which requires a longer span and chord. While the design includes flaps the FAA does not allow their use for meeting stall speed requirements. The horizontal tail is also boosted in size to meet stability requirements of the large wing area.

As a side interest I have compared the current aircraft sizing and planform against my last project, a BD-5G aircraft. While the wing span is essentially the same all other aspects of the design are quite different.
