Why not just build it full scale?

G'day Ted.

Now that is a good question!

Here in Australia we are allowed to build and fly aircraft that have a take
MTOW of 600 kilograms. We do not require a full aviation pilot licence to
operate these aircraft so it is an attractive proposition to make a semi
scale aircraft.

The Ryan at full scale is far too heavy to meet these criteria.

Ian Donaldson

Ah! Government regulation triumphs again over good engineering.
