Default RV-1 Work Day this Saturday January 7th

Dan Horton, his buddy, and I are planning a work day on Saturday with Jay Pratt at RV Central (Hicks Airport, Fort Worth). Hope others will join us. We are down to the push, hoping to finish the plane in the next month. We'll plan to meet at 8 am. I'm coming up from College Station (flying or driving, depending on weather) and can provide a ride to someone that wants to help out. (Paul is working this weekend and won't be able to join us.)

Let's get a good crew out for this final couple of sessions!

They're going to have new wheels, tires, and brakes to install - which means that the wheel pant party can start as well! I think Louise wants to get the belly pan done, and I hear that Danny is still making progress on the FWF. The are lots of details that need attention, so folks - let's get on it. I am hoping to be up there Friday the 13th (next week), and we can keep pushing then. And as always, if you show up just about any day, Jay will point you in the direction of the project.

Paul

Default Dan, Katie, their friends, me, and ??????

Katie B has confirmed as well as Dan Horton and both are bringing others. We can find work for several more folks.

They are currently calling for low IFR conditions in College Station in the morning so I'm not sure if I'll be there first thing, but I'll be there. Might have to drive up.

Still have at least one seat for anyone wanting to go from CS for the day.

Default Trying hard...

Took off in the RV-8 heading for TX and the amps went to 70, fluctuating. Troubleshooting now. Still trying to make it, though!

Default Mission scrubbed.

Battery is toast and we can't find another one in all of Middle Tennessee...

Any chance of an RV-1 work day next week?

We're going to have at least a few folks there next Friday the 13th (hey, we've got an airplane whose N-number has "13" in it....no big deal!)
