Propeller Driven Aircraft with Thrust to Weight Ratio Greater than One

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    Hello all, this is my first post. I was wondering if any of you could point me in the direction of a source with details on propeller aircraft able to produce a T / W Ratio greater than one.

    Thank You!

    Welcome to the PF.

    I googled the title of your thread, and got lots of good hits. This is an example of a stunt biplane with T/W > 1:

    Thank you berkeman, I checked out the aircraft you posted. It definitely has helped point me in the right direction.

    I'm not quite sure though how to "officially" give thanks on this forum.
