The Cabane strut, the 1/2 of the 1 and 1/2 WWI Strutter Sopwith aircraft is finished. It needs to be welded to the frame but we won’t do that until we have verified its position against the lower wing attachments. The new aviation career school students are busy making pieces for the wing. After the wing pieces are finished we will complete the welding and start building the wings. The stabilizer trim system is finally finished, the gear made by one of our AIM students came out great and works as planned. The air brake is also in working order but we will wait to do the final pinning of the cross shaft until we can determine the trailing edge position of the airbrake.

Aviation Institute of Maintenance at Atlanta students are volunteering to come in during spring break so the work will continue.
