The maiden flight for the Aeronca Sedan has now been planned for Sunday 24th June 2018 - depending on favorite weather conditions.

We will post video clip/s & images of the long awaited maiden flight after it was done...
Thanks to all for following our progress and the amount of interest shown in this project.

Right Friends,

After 3 moves .... i.e. 3 relocations of our Workshop ... and countless other customer's who were assisted in a "teaching them to build" scenarios, the Aeronca is done & dusted. We have also since our last update - "lost" our RC Flying Field in Albertinia - so flying is now mainly done at GRF (George Radio Flyers).

I believe it is a good site to do the Aeronca's Maiden Flight.

After one more engine run - we will be ready for the maiden flight. You are most welcome to start thinking about a possible date (pending favorable weather conditions). A Sunday morning around 09h00 at GRF would be a good day of the week and time to think about. We can normally "predict" (with fair accuracy) about a week in advance whether the weather would be agreeable or not.

Give me a shout and lets plan a great day.... (Bernard - 082 756 6640)

Hi Jon,

Jip - it is getting there...

As soon as I am happy that the engine runs reliably we'll start making plans about the maiden flight Saturday.

Maiden flight getting closer - looking forward to it!
Is the flying field in/near Albertinia? Perhaps look at a Saturday, we can drive up and stay over in the local hotel so we can have a beer or 2 to celebrate.

Aeronca Sedan was at the ARCF R/C Field last Saturday for its 1st engine start.
This is really going to be an awesome model.

The engine needs to be run-in properly and then the necessary checks & double-checks prior to the maiden flight...
We can start thinking about a date as soon as I am happy that the engine runs reliably and all other checks & double-checks have been completed.
