There was a misprint in the Newsletter this past issue. In Cube's article on Aerobatics in the T-18 Jim stated that the Aerobatic Gross weight of the C wing was 1600 lbs.

Here's the official text from Mike Archer;

"The structure meets requirements of Cam3 "aerobatic" category at 1500 lbs gross weight. The original gross weight of 1500 lbs was changed to 1600 lbs but the "aerobatic" weight stayed the same. The 1500 lb was established for the total airplane, not just part of it."

Big thanks to John Evens for bringing this to our attention, I had been quoting 1600 lbs for years as well.
