Wings - Ailerons

Back to Log Index

Date: 12/11/2009
Task: Fabricated the aileron bending brake, bent the aileron skins, and clecod onto the leading edge assembly.

I purchased a 2x10x10ft from Aircraft Home Depot today and cut it in half to make the bending brake for the ailerons. I used the hinges I had used on the elevator brake.

The left skin bent.

The right skin bent.

I then cut some 2x4's to make a little jig to hold the ailerons for riveting.

Lastly, I clecod the aft skin onto the leading edge assembly. Next is to rivet the top skins to the spar.
