With the help of Charles Willis, an October graduate, the team here at Aviation Institute of Maintenance in Atlanta completed the build up of the upper and lower ailerons for the WWI Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter. The aileron hinge assemblies are next inline for fabrication. Work still continues on the center section, hopefully we can get back full time on it during the holidays.
