Dave Waller’s Pietenpol Progress

Chapter 431 member Dave Waller sent some pictures of his Pietenpol Aircamper project along with some information:

I started making ribs April of 2012. I got a beat up jig from the chapter and rebuilt it. Then I started on empennage and now I have just about all of the wood parts made except for the spars, leading and trailing edges. I am going to have to rework some parts so that statement is not quite accurate but today I hope to have the parts made to bolt the struts to the fuselage for the center wing section.

I am going to use a Corvair motor and some components from William Wynn to make it an airplane motor. I am trying to make every part myself, which drives my friends with more skills and better shops nuts, but it is my goal.

Looking pretty good, Dave. Thanks for the update and good luck moving forward. Hope to see it flying soon.
