Re: New Rudder Pedals for Chiefs and Sedans

Here is the data off of Dwg. No. 4-717 Rev.C: 4-717 9/3/46 Approved on Aeronca 11A Rev A: 11/6/46 Tolerances revised Rev B: 9/26/46 Added Aeronca 11B and 11C Rev C: 11-17-47 Add Aeronca 15AC I would think that this covers several of the Chief models. However, I will be the first to admit I am not th...

New Rudder Pedals for Chiefs and Sedans

I have sent out for quotes for casting new rudder pedals for the Sedan; the same pedal was originally used on the Chief. I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who would like to order new pedals for their 11 Series Chief or for their Sedan. My point of inquiry on these pedals is prompted by the...

Re: Photos of the new Sedan fuselage from Burl

HI, Guys! Thanks for the kudos. I am in the final process of welding some of the little details that needed to be addressed; that's why no paint yet--it isn't done. Next step is to finalize the gas spring installation on the seaplane doors and get the geometry figured out. Actually did that this wee...

New Sedan Landing Light Lenses

Finally, at long last, I have new landing light lenses in stock. I didn't think that this was going to be the problem that it has turned into but NO ONE wanted to make that lens for me because of the huge size. I know there are a few owners that bought new lenses that turned out distorted and not wh...

STC SA02283AK Permanant Magnet Generator for Sedan

Check out Endowment Enterprises, LLC at http://www.luscombe.org. Doug Combs holds an STC for several aircraft and I worked with them to add the 15AC Sedan to the approved models list. I don't sell the kit but they do. I have seen the kit and it is top quality; it will do all you wish and more. Good,...

Sedan Lift Struts

Like the old saying goes; there's good news and there's bad news. The good news is the price on Sedan lift struts looks like they will be going DOWN for a nice CHANGE . How's that for something different? The bad news is that I need orders for at least 24 struts in order to place the order. Cost per...

Tail Wheel Installation Conversion

It is official now. The Service Bulletin has been approved by the Anchorage ACO. The tail wheel conversion is a service bulletin now, SB15ACTW1. This means a logbook entry only; no 337, no field approval, nothing. Wt change is +1.0 lbs @ +214" when you use the original Scott 8" tail wheel. The speci...

Hang in there, Joe. As soon as I get this fuselage out the door the aux tanks are next on the list to finish. Been hanging fire too long. Actually, the new fuel valve for the Sedan helped push this along; valving was a real problem. Now we need to figure out the type of quantity gauge since the tank...

This conversion removes all the old system completely. No more bungee, no more pivoting tail gear frame. Still uses the Scott 8" tail wheel that was optional on the Sedan originally. This is quite an extensive modification in that the last 30" of the lower longerons is replaced with heavier wall tub...

Tail Wheel Conversion Now a Service Bulletin

I just finished the drawings, writing the Engineering Change Order and Service Bulletin making the Pawnee tail spring conversion an approved factory alternate installation for the 7-842 tail gear assembly.

TC Holder Modifications, Alterations

I'd like to clear up a little misunderstanding that seems to be going around. A TC Holder can add any data or modification to the original data for anything. This includes engines and propellers. As long as the CAR 03 rule is followed (in the Sedan's case) it can be approved as a factory installatio...

Aeronca Sedans never fall out of favor

I got an email today from the principal of the Omro, Wisconsin High School. He has gotten together a group of students to restore a Sedan. Fox News picked up the story; http://www.fox11online.com/dpp/news/local_wluk_omro_students_restoring_vintage_airplane_200901061501_rev1 I have donated a set of p...

You would be amazed at what Dupont 3812S Enamel Reducer will remove and it WON"T damage plexiglas.
