SCHOOLS UPDATE 

 

Below is the latest update as of 19 August 2021.

We have received a wonderful compilation of the wing build from Mueller College.  Click here to view.

The empennage and right wing from our Queenland schools (Burnside State High School and Mueller College) have arrived in Narromine.  SAAA Member and Mentor Graeme Lean went above and beyond for us and drove the components to Narromine.  Thank you so much Graeme.  Here are some photo’s of the journey.

We now await the left wing from Victoria to make it’s journey.  Once the fuselage is complete in Perth (should be soon), we can get everything painted and the plane assembled.

ASHDALE SECONDARY SCHOOL – Update from Lainey Bradley National Co-ordinator SAAA Build Project

The fuselage is coming along.  Our students are very enthusiastic and arrive to the build ready and raring to go!  Our wonderful mentors and volunteers from Chapter 16 (Serpentine) and 24 (Jandakot) have been putting in some additional time to move things along.  We will be taking the fuselage off site for painting the inside shortly.  Upon return, the students will start working on the avionics.

Have a look at this video package that the school has put together.  Click here

TEMORA HIGH SCHOOL – RV12 EMPENNAGE PROJECT – Update from Brett Inch – Teacher

The program has started with six students and the school has had interest from several others.  The students have started  working on the aileron training kit and are becoming familiar with the tooling and techniques required for working in the aviation industry.  The students do not have the opportunity to work with aluminum very often and are learning the different techniques required.

COVID restrictions have made the start of term difficult and hope to overcome these hurdles.  Tooling is something the school is working on as many of them are specialised and/or imperial, in saying that the students are enjoying the new challenges.
