If you want to get a preview of our electrical education series of workshops, we will be presenting a one hour talk at the Central Sierra Helicopter Meet in near Groveland, CA on May 5th and 6th, 2007. You might consider signing up for the Watsonville SportAir workshop in June if you want to get the full experience. Read more about the CSHM event here.
Below is a presentation we created that is intended to get you kickstarted with building a sophisticated kit-built aircraft such as the Lancair IV-P, Turbine Legend, Glasair III and others. Of course, the concepts presented are applicable to the construction of ANY aircraft, so the content really is interesting to anyone involved in building their own aircraft. Let us know if you like it, we'll gladly come and present the information for your group! If you want to download the powerpoint presentation, that file is here. (Please give credit where due if you pass this information on to anyone). We will present the information to your group, no matter the size of the crowd, from 1 to 100 people. We have experience in building most types of experimentals ranging from ultralights to the Lancair IV-P.
