Ed Cesnalis Posted May 9, 2013 Report Share Posted May 9, 2013 http://en.wikipedia....light_Design_CT 'The CTSW is so efficient that it needs to have the pitch of the propeller reduced significantly to stay within the 120-knot (222 km/h) maximum speed of the American Light-sport Aircraft (LSA) rules' I suspect the above quote is not correct and I think if we can verify that we should edit the Wikipedia content or at least challenge it The first reason I think it is suspect is that I have never seen a pitch limitation in my POH perhaps it wouldn't have to be there but since it is allegedly and important and significant limitation I think it would have to be there My speed is already limited via excess drag via limiting my reflex flaps. The language is wrong, it wrong it should read reduced pitch. Aren't CTs now delivered with flatter pitches? Excess load creates unnecessary engine wear. Excess load is a safety issue at altitude. The source seems to predate CTSWs and its Canadian Owners and Pilots Association, October 2004 - it seems to report on a CT2K and implies a resulting limitation on a CTSW Is there a pitch specified in the maintenance manuals? Anyone have a definitive answer on the pitch? Anyone experienced in editing Wikipedia? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
