Tri-Q FAA Requirements

If your aircraft has not flown off the restrictions prior to a change to a tri gear, you must complete all required paper work and flight tests as before.

If your aircraft has completed the flight tests and received the unrestricted experimental certificate, you will need to notify your local FAA GADO or Engineering and Manufacturing office.

They may require further flight testing in a restricted area until satisfied all is O.K. We were allowed to conduct the ground and flight tests without restrictions as our local Officials determined flight safety was not jeopardized by the tri gear conversion.

Proper airframe log book entry is important and should follow this format:

Aircraft converted to a tri gear (Tri Q) by installing a tri gear conversion kit as supplied by Tri Q Development. Modifications to the airframe, including glass layup schedules, reinforcing bulkheads, gear installation, etc. was accomplished using materials as supplied in the kit and Tri Q plans. A new "empty weight and balance" has been computed and a sample fore and aft loading program completed.
