How-to DVDs

Product From Wicks Aircraft Supply

Wicks Aircraft Supply is now offering a series of DVDs designed to make aircraft construction and maintenance an easier process. Eight different DVDs cover everything from scratchbuilding with metal to choosing an experimental powerplant in the 80– to 120-hp range. “Scratch Building Basics for Metal Aircraft” is a Metalworking 101 program that starts with reading plans, building wooden blocks for metal bending, drilling, deburring, use of clecos, and riveting. “Building a Glass Panel” starts with a metal panel and goes through panel planning, cutting and finishing the panel, what instruments to select and how to wire them…including an EFIS and traditional steam gages, and what options are available. The “Weight and Balance” DVD takes homebuilders through the step by step process of completing the FAA’s Weight and Balance document which is required for aircraft licensing. “How to License Your Homebuilt Aircraft” covers the rest of the documents required by the FAA, explains how to get the documents, what happens during the inspection process, and what you can do to expedite that process. “The 912 Competition” DVD provides information on seven engines that fall into the 80- to 120-hp range and which could be considered as options to the Rotax 912. They vary in length from one to three and one-half hours. For more information visit www.WicksAircraft.com or call (800) 221-9425.
