Jeff McCravy and Kerry Pierre welding a new brace on the fuselage

Another week’s work on the Strutter has gone by. We decided last week to make a change to the airplane which required a few changes to the fuselage. We decided that since we are making a training version of the Strutter that it needed dual controls. Using the limited drawings from Sopwith we have started the changes, they mostly consisted of moving a cross member and adding another. The students have already started making the second set of controls. There will be a yoke, rudder pedals, throttle and basic flight instruments in the aft cockpit.
