Girls in Aviation Event

The Cub took a break from assembly today to go play with the kids at the Women In Aviation event at the NACC. About 80 girls, mostly girl scouts, attended the event which had many aspects of aviation on display. For our part, we answered questions and demonstrated aspects of the engineering, restoration, assembly, and maintenance of the Cub. Some were surprised to learn that it was a real airplane and not just a display. Girls who wanted to were given the challenge of disassembling and then reassembling the rudder onto the fuselage. They then traced the cables up to the rudder pedals to discover how it all actually works. Good fun. Work on the Cub will resume on Wednesday, September 27th at 9:30.
