Day 6 - January 28, 2017

This weekend, we continued to make progress on the toolboxes, and many are close to the finish line. The toolboxes bring in a new aspect of airplane building through the use of hinges, rod bending, and thorough planning to ensure a proper fit.

We also had the chance to check out the TeenFlight 1 RV-12 that was built a few years ago. It was a great way to build excitement for our TF5 project by seeing the finished product.

The inventory for the airplane is planned to begin in the next week or two. Stay tuned.

Day 5 - January 21, 2017

Fortunately, the weather cooperated for us this weekend. On Saturday, TeenFlight 5 continued to make progress, and most of the students have finished their OP-51 projects. The toolboxes are the primary task at hand, and we have been moving along smoothly. The toolboxes incorpate many of the same techniques that have been previously practiced on the OP-51, as well as new ones including rod bending, hinges, and latches.  Valuable skills are being learned, and pretty soon the tables will be filled with airplane parts. 
 Tune in next week for more updates!
