LANDING GEAR CHANGES FOR MY RV7A


In order to increase my confidence level while landing at my grass strip and
others like it I have installed slightly larger main gear tires on the original 5" wheels.
I have also installed a new nose gear fork which accommodates a 500 x5 wheel and tire.

Disclaimer:
I am not recommending these changes to others.
I am simply presenting this information to document what I have done to make, in my
opinion, my operations on select unpaved airstrips a bit less risky.
None of these changes have been approved by kit producer, Van's Aircraft.
