ALF ZIMMERMAN'S PROGRESS

Postby whisper » Tue Feb 28, 2006 10:46 am

Alf fetched his basic kit just a few weeks back and is making good progress. Alf is based in Witbank and is going to build his Whisper "full time" so we can expect fast progress - watch this space!

Alf applying the strengthening layers for the engine mount points. He found it easier to lay 5 layers at a time on a piece of plastic and then slide these into place

Alf is going to test fly and debug before his final paint job - not a bad idea...
Apparently he may be number 14

Keep us posted Alf! :D

Alf sent through some pics today and says:
" Hi Russell, Just to show that we are still flying and enjoying it. Have flown over 50 hours of which 18 were power-less.

Waiting for permanent ATF. If weather permits we will see you over Christmas week-end.

As you will notice, we made the panel light and simple, and still don’t get lost.

Did some long climbing exercise, she climbs up to 17,000 ft (I stop climbing not ZIM )with no CH or oil temp problems, and on cruising at 75% power and

185 Km/h uses roughly 14 litres mogas



Thank again for a wonderful aero plane

AlfZ"
