Day 30 - 15 May, 2010

We had 5 team members present for our work session this week. We made progress on the engine cowling and tailcone fairing installations. Work was also started on installation of the main fuselage wiring harness and we finished up mounting the tires on the wheels.

This coming Friday we have a special work session scheduled for a visit from one of our local TV news stations. After that, we have two more Saturday work sessions scheduled (we will not have a work session on Memorial day weekend) and then we will be taking a badly needed summer break.

Day 29 - May 8, 2010

Our current level of progress has brought us to a point where it has become difficult for 12 people to be working at the same time, because of the required work being focused in two or three confined areas. Because of this, we are now working on a rotating schedule with two teams working one week and then the other two teams working the next.

This week we had five Team Members at our work session. We made progress on completing the rear tail cone fairing installation, and trimming the engine cowling in preparation for it's installation.

We also completed the installation of the forward upper fuselage and began the installation of the canopy.

Day 28 - May 1, 2010

We had 8 team members at this week's work session. The fuel tank assembly is now finished except installing the cover plate and fuel level sensor. The fuel system is now mostly finished. We have preparation work underway for canopy installation, rear tail fairing installation, and landing gear installation. Work on the forward upper fuselage is nearly completed.
