Task: Finished the left side of the HS.
I hand squeezed HS-601PP to HS-706, HS-405, and HS-404. All
that remains is to do the right side and then rivet in place
the rear spar. A good friend and fellow RV builder has agreed
to be our technical inspector for this project. Rob Hickman
is the owner of Advanced Flight Systems, manufacturer of the
most popular and capable EFIS in the experimental market.
He has built two beautiful RV's so we look forward to his
end rib riveted in place
and HS-405 ribs in place. Note the 5 holes that are empty.
They are for the empennage fairing. I've heard a lot about
the fairings available for RV's that are much sleeker and
a tighter fit than the stock Van's fairing. It only requires
2 screws on each side rather than 5. I need to do more research
on them but it looks promising. Luckily we have plenty of
time before that time comes.
