Sheet 11 dated 11-8-01 - no stated revisions - but having worked in quality and as a process technician for 15 years I know how that means nothing to most companies.
There is also 1 at staion 76 on the bottom (side view). Which I assume is a seatbelt attach point as it is the same as the one for the passenger seat. There is also a triangle underneath the pilot seat and a strap coming off the front center wing spar under the passenger seat at station 34. These I assume are for the 5th strap between your legs in a 5 strap system. Which I must admit I dont understand what good that strap does. Maybe I would if I had done acro already?
There are also triangles (which I would call gussets)in the seat backs tops where the seat belts do not attach. What are these for? Have there been instances of frames cracking at these points and it was determined they need gussets?
