Day 20 - May 6, 2017 and Day 19 - April 29, 2017

TeenFlight 5 has been busy at work.  Progress is continuing on the side skins and tailcone, while work has started on the flight controls and various sub assemblies in the forward upper fuselage.  The flight control system consists of many push rods and cables that push and pull on the control surfaces to produce movement.  The flap handle, which actuates the flaperons, has also been assembled.  In addition, work on the fuel lines is progressing and is looking good.  The canopy frame has also been worked on to ensure a proper fit.  In upcoming classes, we will be starting to focus on the landing gear, wheels, and brakes.

 Stay tuned!
