Work continues on the Sopwith. The new students to our aircraft build are producing parts for the Sopwith and our Rotec run stand. The run stand is almost finished. This Friday we will be building the oil tank and running the lines for the fuel and the oil. Everyone from the student body to the staff want to know when it will be ready to run? Hopefully very soon. We are working on the main gear axels and fairings for the Sopwith also. The brake arrangement and associated plumbing is also in the works. Recieve new drawings for parts on the Sopwith from a former student every week. Bill Eyke graduated from our school and now is employed in the avaiation field, he has agreed to continue doing our CAD drawings. This has been a tremendous help on the project. Will post pictures next week.
