Ailerons – Start to prepare by shaping ribs

Aileron ribs are CNC pre (part) cut. Thicker ones are 6mm ply and need rubbing down for prep to test fit to aileron spar

Tucked up above my garage as the Force 6 outside winds its way up to  Force 8 its quite cosy cutting out ribs and bracing sections. Supposed to be nipping to Guernsey tomorrow in a Cherokee Six but forecast F7 Northerly’s on an E/W runway is not conducive to keeping the legs straight !
