Started out on January 6th:
Report from Our President: We had a great, but chilly, morning at K89. Alan and I were joined by Nick, Al, and three very welcome guests. We worked on Nick's Fisher Celebrity as well as the flight simulator. The simulator proved a bit challenging to master when flying from the mouse and keyboard, but we'll be getting a proper yoke, throttle quadrant, and rudder pedals soon.
One of our new members has a project he is looking for assistance on. We will call this venture Nick's Celebrity Fisher. We will enter new pictures on our progress. Hope you enjoy this and you are always welcome to help in this very rewarding task. In January 2017 Nick and some of the members brought the beginnings of his airplane to our club room along with the many pieces - We started out with two wings - a mess of little parts and drawing. With a lot of help from many interested aviation enthusiast this is where the process has advanced thus far. As you can see there is no age limit to getting involved.

We are still working on Nick's Celebrity - We will be looking at the covering of the wings with fabric which will be a great experience for any.
Our Members section: Restoring Aircraft Finished.
Alan Leonard's Air Coupe --- Alan had this airplane in pieces at his farm. The Chapter members volunteered to give him some assistance in restoring it. He loaded the wings and drug them to the Macon Fower Airport where he and others began the long tedious process of removing rivets for the interior inspection and repairs if needed.
On the right is the wing that members began working on their first work night February 15th 2010. Pictured is Alan L, Tracy S, Wayne N, missing from photo Jim W and Ray S. This was the first night of many spent on the aircraft. In October it was reported that the plane took flight and Alan expressed his excitement with this restoration.
Update - Air Coupe was completed and has been an exciting new member of the Chapters aircraft. Alan has also been working on another project that will be completed soon. Come check out our Annual FlyIn's and see what new aircraft he has brought out of bone yards to brighten our skys.
