Horizontal Spar
Horizontal stabilizer spar

With the dedicated help of Henry McAdory and Eric Rivers the horizontal stabilizer spar is completed. Eric and Henry had to build multiple jigs to get the routing as accurate as called out for in the plans. The end product is a beautiful piece of wood working. Two more ribs have to be completed before assembly begins. Mr. Patterson has built a jig for the hydraulic press to bend the metal pieces for the stabilizer. This Friday should be assembly day for the stabilizer. The summer heat is slowing down progress on other areas of the build as the temps in the hangar are well over 100 most days, we can’t wait for our new building (airconditioning) and it will also give us a lot more room to work as we progress into the wing build.
