Bringing it Back

Good day to all,

This has been a long time coming, and frankly has been a rather large oversight on my part.  The last two years have seen a number of changes, both with the CAF and with my life.  This is no excuse, but it is important that you all know that the plan is to reboot the Blog, bring us back up to date, and get the info out to those of you who aren't able to make it down as often as you'd like.

To start with, we have a new aircraft! An L-17 Navion was donated to us, and is currently undergoing major restoration at our hangar.  We have replaced skins, structural members, and are close to reassembling the fuselage.  This has already been a great project, and will be a fantastic example of type once it is completed!

We are looking to sell the Harvard MKIV.  It is currently listed for sale here.  Don't worry though!  We will be purchasing an AT-6 so that we can operated History Flights!  Please keep your eyes peeled for buyers and sellers!

We have purchased a new hangar, after the hangar next to our auxiliary hangars burned down.  A rebuild is happening for those aux hangars, in fact, one of the owners has donated his T-hangar to us.  That means we will have lots of space for aircraft, parts and even looking at a machine shop!  One of the aircraft looking to move into our new aux hangar is Matt Quy's Stearman restoration project.  It will be painted in honor of POW/MIA vets.  Once completed it will be quite a sight to behold!

Our hangar has been through MASSIVE changes.  We continue to adjust, clean and prep for the year.  As it warms up, we will do a walking tour to help you all see what we're up to!

In the meantime, I'll start posting some maintenance/restoration work taking place.  I'm sorry again for not keeping this up, but I promise to keep it going!
