Brons2; as a big of a man that you are, you will be doing a sardine job front or rear seat. I am assuming that you will be front seat and qual PIC in rear so you can experience first-hand, but might suggest that if you have chance for some rear seat time and the airplane still has the swivel seatpan so you can rotate 180 deg in flight, you do partake. Rear canopy pushed fwd, relaxing, looking out past the feathers is might-near as cool as being upfront (and, of course, you don't have the workload). Anyway, have wonderful time, and remember the six is stressed and certed for just about any aerobatic loads you guys will be envolved in, and it will be FUN!
The only major difficulty with a six (as I percieve, anyway) envolves rotation parameters (the old boys, and I, have saying that one should train in a C47 or even a B17, THEN learn how to train in a T6
). In flight the T6
SATL382G...R4360s always sound "wrong". The R1340 sounds perfect and you don't really "need" more than 900-950HP in a T6
unless you're doing special stuff. Kind regrads...Jack
