Maintaining Aging Airplanes
« on: February 01, 2012, 12:05:51 PM »
I've just posted the Best Practices Guide For Maintaining Aging General Aviation Airplanes in the Manuals and Documents section of the website.  http://www.culvercadet.com/manuals/agingbestpractices.pdf

There's also a maintenance checklist that can be customized for Culvers.  http://www.culvercadet.com/manuals/agingchecklist.doc

Hi Cadet Pilots,  Do realize that some of the cadets we have flying today are 70 years old.  That is a long time for a set of wings to be swiming in the great ocean of air. I have all the drawings to build a new set of wings, all we need is the manpower and a few bucks to by the material. Any on out there willing to take on the project. The finger my point to me, but I have an excuse, at 90 I might not be around to compleat the project, but in the mean time all my procedures and tolling are at your comand. Neal

They are great drawings too!  I only stopped building from scratch because I found a project that I was going to use for parts but it is too good to salvage.  Thanks again for the engineering work and for the ride in Aug '10.  I am glad to see you joined the forum Neal!
