Re: Powered glider registration

That formula is:

W/b^2<=0.62 lb/ft^2

Translated, it's "weight divided by span squared is less than or equal to
0.62 pounds per square foot." This is not a regulatory formula, and is not
the only criteria needed to be met to qualify as a powered glider.

Don't get your hopes up too high.

The formula W/b2 =.62 is for regular gliders not experimental
home built. The space shot by Rutan was registered as an
experimental homebuilt glider.
