Fuel tank ribs

Fitted the ribs to the tank, hopefully for the last time. I masked the edges of the ribs. Next step is to install sealant and shoot rivets.




Today Grant (my instructor) and I did a half dozen take offs and landings. Next thing I know, he’s telling me to drop him off at the hanger and tells me the airplane will perform a lot better without him in it! Off I went and did two more SOLO take offs and landings! Not my best landings, but I didn’t bend, break or injure anything or anyone! Not bad…

I’m looking forward to the next part of my training!
