Nearing completion

Post by CptBach » Thu Apr 13, 2006 19:14

Hey Guys,

Thanks for all the help with the seat/gear/fairings questions. All problems solved.

Last remaining items go to paint on Tuesday, battery goes in, wings go on Wednesday. We'll fire it up Thursday and finish the last bit of trim and interior stuff, rigging, and the little odds/ends the week after.

Weight/balance and annual, brakes, and wing fairings are all that's left so we should get her in the by mid May for the first time in 42 years!

We should be able to make the Kewanee Aeronca Fly-in. If not, I'll be there in a friend's L3 he has for sale ($17K and a nice looking little bird).

Sounds promising, Rob. Always nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just got the fabric shrunk on the chief, painted pink and about half the long finish tapes on. Hope to have it up through silvr by my fly-in. Hope to see the Sedan, but would take you in the L-3 also.
