Atlanta WWI Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter Project Update
More work completed by students in Atlanta on their WWI Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter aircraft.
Volunteer students at Aviation Institute of Maintenance in Atlanta have been busy this week completing numerous projects on the WWI Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter. These promising aviation mechanic students finished plumbing the oil lines and the fuel systems hard lines on this challenging aircraft. Another group from the aviation school finished the battery box installation. They have started wiring the instrument panel for the Sopwith and all the wires that go through the firewall, ignition, alternator and such. One of the sheet metal instructors from the aviation career school in Atlanta has been helping on the nose cowl so that should be completed soon.
All in all the Atlanta WWI Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter project is moving along very well. There are still some hurdles to get over but they are getting there.
