wing size
« on: Dec 25, 2010 »
Last week I checked in to ask how long the Sonerai II was but I forgot to ask about the wing size...
The project that I am to pick up is far away and the info is sketchy..all I have are pictures at this time. My question is ...how long are the SII wings, how wide (cord), and how thick ?
I plan to leave Tuesday morning to drive to northen Pennsylvania...weather permitting...and I would like know how to best box this thing up before I arrive.
Thanks...it is snowing here now..our first white Christmas in a long while.

Hi Jim,

Wing root-to-tip distance is about 8-1/2 feet and the spar tab extends another 10 inches inboard. The cord is 54 inches and the maximum thickness is about 6.5. If your journey takes you through central Pa. and you'd like to compare Sonerais, feel free to give me a holler.

Hi Ed...Thanks for the info, I will be going up I 81 to Wilkes-Barre. We received more than 6" of snow yesterday and today...that pretty well brings North Carolina to a slow crawl...I don't know if I will get out of here on Tuesday.
Where are you located ?

Fredericksburg, 9N7, 6 miles east of 81 on I-78. If your schedule permits I'd be happy to meet you there. I've never actually laid eyes on another Sonerai so this would be fun for me. I'll send you a PM with my phone number.
