Seat Broke

Posted on Updated on

I’ve always wondered if the seat was strong enough, turns out its not. The seat is made from plywood with an RS-10 glued underneath to keep it from bowing. While sitting in the airplane I heard a crack when the RS-10 broke away from the seat on one side. To prevent this from reoccurring I added a bolt on each side of the seat.
