Day 52 - January 19, 2013

After taking off the lower cowling half, we extracted the clecoes from the dried resin and inspected the bonding work.  It set up very nicely and formed a nice thick bond between the cowl half, the cooling duct, and the cooling duct interface.

One of the students routed the engine control cables.  They are not hooked up to the engine yet, but are all in place and ready for attaching.

As one of the finishing steps in the control systems, we tightened and verified the tension of the elevator control cables.  In order to adequately set a neutral point for the control stick, the plans called for clamping it to a piece of wood that ran the width of the cockpit.
We also moved along with progress on the landing gear service bulletin for the TeenFlight 1 airplane.
