Air brake chain sprocket and brake drum

Air brake Pulley fitted to aircraft
Aileron spars ready for gluing

All the routing is completed on the aileron spars and now it’s time to glue and fasten them together. The control horns and all the ribs are completed for each aileron,The last piece to be fabricated will be the metal trailing edges.

Received the airbrake pulley from machining, looks really great. Attached the chain sprocket and fitted it to the airframe, fits just as required. We now need to complete the brake handle and attaching parts for the braking controls for the airbrakes. A leather strap is used on the pulley to hold the airbrakes in position, a handle is used to adjust the tension to hold the airbrakes in what ever position the pilot requires.
