Wings - Flaps

Back to Log Index

Date: 12/3/2009
Task: Assembled flaps. Riveted the FL-706A/B mounting plates into place and riveted the FL-705 ribs to the back of the FL-702 bottom skin.

I started by riveting the FL-706B mounting plate to the FL-704 spar. I then riveted the K1000-4 nutplate on.

I then riveted FL-706A onto the FL-703 spar.

Next I riveted the aft hole in the FL-705 ribs to the FL-702 bottom skin.

The right flap being clecod together.

Repeated the riveting on the right flap.

Left flap clecod together. Ready for riveting. The procedure is to make a jig to hold the flap in place vertically and rivet with the spar removed. I still need to make the jig.

Right flap clecod together, ready for riveting.
