Our first frame this week shows a student using a rotary sander. This students name is Fasu Konneh. Fasu has made a long trip to come to the United States of America. His home is in Monrovia, Liberia. He wants to earn his Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certificate and use that certificate as a spring board for more education. A Masters degree in aviation is his goal.  With a Masters degree in his hand he will return home and open up a aviation school. “There is a great need for this trade (A&P) in my country” he says. Our second picture shows Fasu and Francisco Johnston laying out a pattern. Picture three has Instructor Scott Tiemann and Fasu inspecting a bend that was made on a piece of square tubing. Last week you saw Jessica Griffin heating this tube. This is the final product, a ten degree bend that took over an hour of heating and slowly hand bending to make this curve. This is a very important fuselage tube for our Nieuport 24 aircraft. It was a slow process but it turned out good. In our last picture student Rodger Munn is doing more detail cutting on a side former. Rodger served his country in the Navy for over 20 years and now is embarking on a second career as a A&P.
