Ready for assembly,
And 5 pop rivets later,
Of course building is only half the fun! To finish off the morning we jumped in the RV-10 for the students first flight experience
( Co-Pilot is another one of our students, Daniel is 15 and building his own RV-12IS with another FYE group build)
Alex and Lara were very focused as we taxied but screemed with delight as we took off, I had to mute the rear seats so I could hear the pattern traffic.
A wonderful morning spent with some delightful young students. To close out the morning, the students were given some hand outs that explained all the parts and workings of the aircraft they had just built.
A special treat was to meet Bob Tait, owner of Bob Tait's Aviation Theory School. A living legend of Australian Aviation and a big supporter of FYE.
The three completed aircraft have now flown many missions around the world as can only be seen be the amazing imagination of our youth.
Ready for the next mission..
