Airplane Restoration Project

The restoration of the Taylorcraft is on hold at present.  The plane is owned by Chapter Member Jonnie Via who kindly allowed Chapter members to work on the restoration. However, the completion of the restoration will require considerable investment in fabric, instruments, motor and propeller. This investment will probably be beyond the final market value of the plane. Our Chapter does not have the funds to make any significant cash donation to supplement investments by the Owner, which is a major reason why the project has been put on hold.  The Chapter wants to thank Jonnie Via, and Bill Siegel who provided his shop as a working space, and for the positive experiences we have had in working on the restoration.
