The process of learning is challenging and rewarding at the same time. The excitement of understanding how something is made and fabricating it is part of what our aviation maintenance school is about. In the first four pictures one of our students, Anna Brown illustrates this in the making of a fuel line for the Nieuport 24 (N24) aircraft we are building. First she cut the hose to the correct length and the pictures show a sequence of actions she takes installing the hardware to the hose and connecting it to the aircraft. The size six hose is a gravity fed off the fuel tank to a firewall connection. Hoses such as this are assembled in our Fluid Lines and Fittings class but working on the N24 Anna gets to hone her skill even more. In the last two pictures welding is being done on the oil tank.
