HRFC Member Bruce Fitzgerald has recently taken ownership of a Rotax two stroke powered Australian Lightwing in need of a little TLC! I am sure that Bruce will keep us informed of progress as he works his way through to completion.
G’day Bob, I thought you might like a bit of an update on where I’m at with the Lightwing.
Both fabric panels are off the sides of the cockpit to allow assessment and repair of the damage to the tubes from the door pins and because the original fabric was in a poor state.
The fwd floor panel has been damaged at some time, apparently from someone jumping on the heel brakes. Both floor panels are currently out for the fitting of the optional “Freddy Flintstone brakes”. 😁
I’ll keep you posted mate.
Good morning Bob, Good news on the Lightwing project, my unique engine bearer frame has arrived from Jabiru this morning. 😁
