Piper PA17 Vagabond Rebuild 1993
Steve and I rebuild another fabric airplane. In 1993, the new owner of a Piper Vagabond brought us an airplane(some bits and pieces in cardboard boxes!) to recover in Stits* polyester process. The sticker shock was because so much of it was damaged or missing. Enjoy some photos and in-cockpit video as we had fun taking rides in our 2 seater. notes: after this rebuild,it was sold and the next owner continued with the wind driven generator, and upgraded the Continental engine to 90HP.

My most successful rebuild as an AP-IA, with help from my colleague Steve. No video of the process(photos only), but got the test flight and seaplane action! My boss probably had over 40 years in Cubs like this, and he gave me his thumbs up after this recovering with Stits*.

The new owner of an Acrosport came to our FBO, summer of 1993 in need of recovering the sport bi-plane, and complete reassembly. Part 2 begins with the owner taking wings and fuselage to paint. An additional mechanic volunteered his time during the fuselage assembly. Our "fabric man" was an expert RC Model builder and joined our "rigger" during the final build phase.

Cape Cod Coastal Tour by AIR 1988 skyhawk's archive
welcome to my videos. on my first download, I suggest you turn your speakers down because I kept the raw full audio of the Cessna's prop and the rush of air at 2000 feet! Today, we start near the Osterville south shore and head west to Couit, then up Buzzards Bay, the Sagamore Bridge, and along the north shore of Sandwich and finally Sandy Neck. If you recognize a spot that I haven't titled, please leave a message and I might add it in a future re-edit. I'm hunting my VHS,Beta,8mm tapes for more aviation related STUFF!
