    Default Another Project Back In The Air

    Well this time it isn't a Short Wing but a VERY nice "Cub Special"
    Son and I acquired this PA-11 after it had a prop strike and outboard front spar damage. We repaired the spar and recovered the tip and repainted the wing among other items.
    A VERY Famous and well known Cub Specialists on this Forum with a little help from his friends performed the Mighty C-85-12s overhaul with new Superior's Millennium Cylinders.

    Don't forget Brandie. I think y'all have started something with her. I foresee a new pilot and A&P.

    Steve,
    You are 100% correct. Brandie is always supportive of Trey and has been working her tail off helping Trey on the Cub and Citabria. She also does plenty of other stuff in the hangar to help.

    Thanks Guys,
    We also recently put a Citabria 7ECA back in the air after replacing one wings spars and recovering it. We also installed a new interior. It is a 1975 ECA and one of the cleanest all original planes I have seen in a long time with only TT 1300 HRS and 100HR. cylinders.
