Airplane rigging has a large influence on aircraft performance and is often the most easily changed. This manual continues on where most instructions leave off and provides answers to the many questions that arise when building or rigging an airplane. Factors driving various rigging geometries are discussed, and methods and tools of measurement are illustrated for different situations and configurations.
For the homebuilder, the techniques, tools, and procedures given in this book may be used both during and after the construction process. This information is intended to supplement the kit or plans for an aircraft. This manual also discusses experimenting with the rigging of an airplane to increase performance and control in a particular phase of flight.
For the pilot, this manual gives insight to the rigging factors driven by design, and provides the language to describe the behavior of the aircraft in unambiguous terms to the mechanic.
