VAA Tips for Restorers Hands On Workshop
Beginning at 9:00 AM each day throughout the week VAA is hosting a true “hands on” workshop, located in the VAA Type Club Hangar next to the VAA Red Barn. These daily workshops will cover a number of different topics of interest to many owners who maintain and fly vintage aircraft.
VAA Metal Workshop
Mr. Roger James, D & D Classic, Covington, OH will be holding a workshop demonstrating unique metal work such as making compound curves for cowling, wing root fairing strips and instrument panels. Located in the southwest corner of the VAA Type Club Hangar, Roger will be on hand from 9 to 5 every day.
Hand Propping Demonstration
Each day at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM, a detailed hand propping demonstration is being held in front of the VAA Type Club Hangar. This is a “never miss” demo if you want to learn how to do hand propping safely.
Vintage in Review at Interview Circle
Tuesday, July 29, 2013, 11:00 AM
Jim Beisner from Troy, OH will operate the 1918 OX5 engine to introduce each day’s Interview Circle.
Mr. Ray Johnson launches today’s daily “Vintage in Review” presentation with Dave and Jeanne Allen of Elbert, CO. The Allen’s own and fly a beautifully restored 1934 Waco YKC powered by a Jacobs 275 HP engine. This aircraft served the Ohio Bureau of Aeronautics for five years. It was damaged and never flown again until the Allen’s completed the restoration on June 18, 2013.
Sarah Wilson, owner/pilot of the 1929 Stearman 4E Jr. Speedmail, will then answer questions about her beautifully restored airplane and then detail some of the historic roles this aircraft has contributed to aviation history.
