    We've had wide guys, tall guys, and tall wide guys in the back, comfortably. We're talking mid 300 lbs., over 6'5". Bigger may fit. Getting in and out is not bad, after you get the system down. For somebody really big, you can tilt the front seat forward while they get in and out.

    The big guys we know who ride back there are comfortable all day. I sit back there a lot, and it's great.

    Hi, Casey;

    Just to add to what the others have said, I am 6'5", and 255 lbs., and as a dealer, I spend a lot of time in the back seat on demo flights. Somewhat of a gymnastics exercise for me to get in the back seat, (every back-seater will have a "system" to get into the seat), but once there, I've flown many three hour legs with no issues.

    at 6'5' 255, that should cover the question ...... only controls in the back seat is stick and peddles and throttle lever?
    plus any items in the wing root? thanks.....

    Correct - back seat stick, throttle, rudder pedals, and easy access to the passenger wing root intercom controls and headset jacks.
