April 14, 2020 - Work continues on the RV-10, although at a much slower pace. Steve reports that the COVID RV-10 workforce has been effectively reduced to Steve.
Even with the greatly reduced workforce, progress is still measurable, and work continues every day. Milestones reached in the past month:
The Wings are in Steve’s garage, and they get attended to for a couple of hours every evening. Recent developments include:
Wing rough in wiring is complete; The autopilot and trim services are installed, tested, and wired in; The control rods are installed and calibrated to length;The dreaded large bottom skins of the wings are riveted on; All of the lights have been assembled (they were LED board kits) and tested; Only the wing tips and the landing light cut-outs remain to be done.
The Fuselage is sitting lonely and un-attended most days. However, work still proceeds on Thursday evening and Saturday mornings. Recent progress includes: Completion of conduit installation and rough in wiring from tailcone to panel area; Completion of antenna wire runs; Installation of luggage area and passenger seat flooring panels; Static lines have been run from the tailcone.
Most importantly, the project team’s shirts have arrived (Rachel, my daughter is modeling), for everyone on the build team.
