Although it has been some weeks since I have posted anything on the blog, it is not because we haven’t been working on the airplane. In fact, we have been very productive these past couple of months. The horizontal stabilizer, elevators and trim-tab are done, and we are ready to start prepping them for paint. We have also been building the seat pans for the cockpit. Here is a picture of the two of us sitting in our cockpit for the very first time!

This is a huge milestone for the project. Up to now, the only way to check out how we will fit and how comfortable we will be in the airplane was by sitting in our “mockpit”. Now that the seats are nearly done on  the real thing, we are able to confirm that all the controls will be in the right place and we will be able to reach them while belted in. More on this subject in the next few days!
