Tail On… Temporarily

20140721-200045-72045483.jpg
I put the tail on today in preparation for checking cable runs and interference issues with the rudder and elevator. As seems to always be the case, new problems are found trying to fix old ones. This continues to be a fun and challenging project.

My friend Jason sent me this picture of the A-65 that’s going in his Baby Ace. I’m drooling.

Ryan’s Secret Plan

If you’re on Facebook, please join the group “Taildragger Pilots United”. It is an open group with members around the world. Lots of good sharing of pictures, videos, and information.

The following photo was shared by Ryan Lunde, and I have to admit, I’m quite envious of the success he’s had implementing his “secret plan”. Read it in his own words below.

20140515-060107.jpgCuriously, ever since I started my current flying job two years ago, my company’s hangar has been slowly filling with taildraggers. In fact, it’s now the ratio is about 50-50. Some people say that I keep making my students buy taildraggers and I’ve been told to knock it off. I can’t make anybody do anything, but I take that sentiment to mean that my secret plan of making more competent tailwheel pilots is coming to fruition.

Ryan also has some spectacular photos over at www.championairphotos.com. Be sure to check it out.

Photo credit goes to Ryan, of course.

Inspiration in a Taylorcraft

20140513-060149.jpg

What a beauty! This Taylorcraft BC12-D, NC5208M was spotted at the Person County Airport (KTDF) back in May. FAA registry data shows that it is owned by Frank Hargrove of Beaverdam, VA. I really love the trim on this ship, and will likely do something similar on the Ace.

This photo is from the Taylorcraft group on Facebook, and I believe photo credit goes to Steve Roth.

This trim scheme is similar to the Ray Hill Hatz I posted previously.

I haven’t made much progress on the Ace recently, but these beautiful finished airplanes are good motivation.
