Arrow RV-1 Photos - Work Day #4

Work Day #4 began as an impromptu gathering to complete a few small tasks, but it quickly blossomed into a full fledged work day with 10 volunteers in the shop! Many familiar and a few new faces tackled a variety of tasks... a Service Bulletin issued for a Stitts Playboy horizontal stabilizer was completed, flying wires were tuned, canopy hardware installed and functioning smoothly, belly pan completed except for final fit and attachment, major progress on engine baffles, measurements for fuel lines completed, and a small parts order was placed. We were blessed with beautiful weather and it was a VERY productive day!

The RV-1 project is made possible by a dedicated community of volunteers and vendors who generously donate their time, expertise, and financial support. To everyone involved - Thank You!... Job Well Done!

And my A model had a front row spot along with Val.

When leaving, about the time I got the nosewheel onto pavement, I realized I should have used a towbar for that part of the maneuver. I hope I didn't rearrange the shop too much.

You know, we'd be back up there today, except we have this new -3 to fly, and my crotchety old DAR wouldn't give me that big of a Phase 1 area.... (just kidding Mel!!)

Seriously, if you're in reach of Hicks, what a great way to spend a holiday if you have the time. Can't wait to see the final report for the week Jay!

Well, it still bets driving!
Maybe you could do something about organizing a work month - for those of us who have an old Cessna and are still dreaming of flying our very own RV. I'll order a kit this evening if I know I can count on you Paul.

Really did enjoy meeting everyone there. Being new to the scene, I certainly appreciated how welcomed I was made to feel. Will be back for more.

All the Best,

Clayton
