Youth Aviation Build: Taylorcraft BC65

The Chapter acquired a 1940 Taylorcraft BC65 in mid-September for our Aviation Youth Center.  Local High School students are getting hands on experience completing the restoration and assembly of the aircraft.  Just recently our student team cleaned up and partially disassembled the wings to be recovered and painted.  In the process, many of our students learned to rib stitch. Completion for the project is targeted for April 2020.
