TeenFlight Build update: Sunday, Mar 24th 2019
Haven’t published a build update in awhile so here is the catch-up.
The students are nearly done with the spinner and once done marks the completion of the build with the first engine start soon to follow.
We filed our registration docs to the FAA and that it was issued 3/19 and we are simply waiting for the registration card to arrive so we can file the remaining paperwork with the Seattle MIDO and schedule our FAA inspection.
It is our intention to get the airworthy inspection first followed by taking it to the paint shop.
On the tailcone, we decided to purchase the new and improved tailcone faring so the students are finishing up installing it.
On the stabilator, we decided to update it with the optional tip fairings and one side is completed and their doing their final fit on the other side.
The wing flaperons are completed and stored.
The L&R wing skeletons are complete and they have started riveting the wing skins.
They cutout landing light openings on both wings for the dual light option and installed all necessary wing wiring.
On the fuselage, the rollover structure is installed and they are fitting the rear top skin in preparation for rear canopy glass.
The upper firewall was installed and sealed.
Fuels line were fabricated and installed.
Rudder pedal assembly was installed along with plumbing for the brake lines to the gear legs.
We would like to thank Ed Hrivnak and Doug MacArthur for their continued ground school presentation. They’ve done a great job teaching our students about airspace, weather and aeromedical.
We would also like to thank Brice Johnson who has been teaching the students the necessary science and math in our electric RV-12 project. We’ll make a separate post on that project later. ... See MoreSee Less
