A  huge milestone was met by the Aviation Institute of Maintenance located in Chesapeake, Virginia Friday January 17, 2014.

Our Nieuport 24 went for it’s first taxi check! This is the direct result of many current and past students building this aircraft for many years. Our next goal is to have it flying in the blue skies for the 100 year anniversary of the Great War. We feel we can make this goal by June/August 2014 time frame.

Our upper wings need a little more work and then we will try to fit them to the aircraft.
