Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

Have you ever thought about building your own aircraft?  Then this event is for you.  The 2016 Experimental Fly-In not only has displays of amateur-built aircraft and other seminars in the morning (see EA6169560, Aeromedical Certification and EA6169561, First Flights), these two afternoon workshops will allow you to learn some of the basics of building your own metal or composite aircraft.  Both workshops start at 1 PM in adjacent hangars.

1:00 PM:  Basic Metal Aircraft Construction workshop
This workshop is designed to familiarize the attendee with basic metal aircraft construction and the tools used. Various specialized tools will be shown and discussed.  There will be an opportunity for hands on fabrication such as locating, drilling and setting rivets in aluminum structures. Pull rivets will also be discussed.

1:00 PM:  Composite Aircraft Construction and Repair workshop
The Composite Aircraft Construction and Repair workshop will introduce the attendee to basic composite building techniques relevant for Aircraft Construction pioneered by Rutan and Melvill with the introduction of the home-built composite aircraft.  Course will provide a special focus on considerations related to maintenance and ongoing support for canard aircraft as well as a general discussion with regards to systems development and implementation.

This seminar is being held at the 2016 NorthEast Experimental Fly-In (FREE Admission, Seminars, & Parking) where many homebuilt aircraft are expected to be on display, including several Van’s RV and Rutan canard aircraft, as well as Zenith, Sonex, Kitfox, Challenger and more.
 
IF FLYING IN:
HOMEBUILT AIRCRAFT:      Please taxi to the junction of DELTA & ECHO at LWM;  Ground team will identify parking for homebuilts.  For putting your homebuilt on display, you will receive a free all-u-want food combo ticket (1 per homebuilt aircraft on display) for both breakfast and lunch.
PRODUCTION AIRCRAFT:   Please park on the North Ramp (large parking area next to Echo) where available spaces will be identified with a chalk circle around the space number, then walk past the red hangars to the event.
 
IF DRIVING IN:
Turn onto Holt Rd off Rt-125 in No. Andover (about 1 mile north of where Rt-133 turns East). At end of Holt Rd, turn right (Clark St).  GATE 4 will be on the left.
