WICKS AIRCRAFT / POLY-FIBER WORKSHOP

 

This 2-day seminar will give you hands on experience learning the basics of fabric covering.  Poly-Fiber Aircraft Coatings personnel will be running the hands-on seminar.  Working from a syllabus that has been refined over the past 15 years, the presenters will demonstrate preparation, fitting, gluing, heat-shrinking, coatings, taping, rib stitching and final painting techniques.

 

Essentially, it’s a 16-hour hands-on course, working with the materials and learning the skills of aircraft covering.  “We provide all the materials and tools for the class.  In 2 days of cutting, stitching and painting, most people are ready to go home and cover wooden wings or a tube fuselage.”
