Jan 23rd, 2024 - January Meeting - Chris Gill's Smith/BBI SuperCub Build

Chris Gill hosted our January meeting in his garage ... er ... SuperCub Factory, complete with a great custom-made edge roller. Chris and Lisa were great hosts, providing water and sweet snacks. And heat!

Chris' plane review included a 6-page handout of notes and "deets" (i.e., details). Chris has the wide-body kit from BBI Aviation (Nick Smith Jr. & Sr.) out of Thorndale, Ontario. He has the seaplane package, including left door. Chris just hung an Aero Sport O-375 (195 hp) and will use the Catto 84x43 prop. He covered details about project history & goals, build issues & helpful resources, build log organization & dating photos, fuel system, instruments ("Don't buy early"), covering plan, etc.

An organized, very informative meeting, indeed, for both homebuilders and all of 10 of us present!
