Work Continues on the RV-12

Work on the finishing kit is continuing on the RV-12 down in hangar #6.  It won’t be long now and the gear will go into place ad it will truly look like an airplane.  We still need donations so we can order the avionics soon and continue the progress. Pictures below of recent work.

RV-12 – Progress Continues

Steady progress has continued this month on the RV-12.  The finishing kit is coming along. Lots of wire has been put in and labeled and control parts and pieces are being installed.  Soon the wings will be ready to go on for good.  As the project moves forward we are reaching a point that we would like to order the avionics kit.  To do so we will need to raise some additional funds.  To donate you can go to www.mkt.com/eaa690 and click on the RV-12 Donation button.

As the New Year begins we will begin work to organize the Hangar 6 Flying Club and put the plan together to move ownership of the RV-12 to the flying club and its members.

Here are some pictures of the recent work.

Updates through May 2017

Its been awhile since we have updated the site & we have finished the fuselage through the installation of the tail cone, seats, instrument panel with a matte black finish on the panel & glare shield. The wing kit arrived several weeks ago and progress on the spars is well underway. The finishing kit has also been ordered & should arrive sometime later this summer.

Update on Build 10-24-2016

We are finishing up the metal work for the fuselage. We are getting the interior ready to paint and then install rudder pedals, brake system & rudder cables along with the torque tube for the stabilator. We still need to raise more funds for the purchase of the wing kit.

Update on RV12

Well, we are moving right along on the fuselage. over the past several weeks we have completed the lower firewall mounting, the seat hinge attached to the center section, the side skins on the center section, and various bits and pieces. Last night we assembled the roll bar and started fitting to the fuselage attach brackets. we will be joining the tailcone to the center section over the next several days and installing the rudder peddle assemblies.
