Special Projects

Last updated - 9/1/06.

This section contains links to some of the "special projects" that I am working on for extra credit. Ok, so you don't get extra credit for doing things yourself. In fact, it appears that the airplanes that have the best chance of being a "show plane" are not built or painted by the actual owner. However, being able to do these types of experiments is one of the things that makes building your airplane worth it. You can hardly change a screw on a production airplane without breaking an FAA regulation. Just think what they would say if you installed your own experimental lighting system.

Some of these projects, such as the panel labels and upholstery, are just "skill building" projects that I am working on prior to actually performing the required tasks on the airplane. Some of the other special projects, involve designing boards or devices to use on the airplane.
