Ballast weight for glider
July 8, 2018
Purchased one, then a second, to set in the seat for lighter-weight glider pilots and/or passengers. Each of these 25 lb bags -- with steel shot -- measure 8.5x14 inches and are 2.5 or 3 inches thick, and side-by-side they fill the seat nicely. For just using one bag in the cockpit, it fits below the seat in a recess because it isn't comfortable by itself to sit on. Considered making my own, but getting the raw materials was pretty close in cost to getting these shipped. Shipping was fast. I also spoke with them on the phone before ordering, and the customer service was pleasant, helpful, and professional.
