The last engine run was in October 2021. Since then we’ve been waiting for paperwork to go between IAA and ILAS. This finally got sorted out the first week of January and on 15th January 2022, 5 years after her ground-loop in Florida on 10th December 2017, N4180V took to the skies as EI-AEN.
Steering was aided by tail-feathers from N3832V which last used them on 23rd Feb 2002.
There is still work to do – her rigging is not yet perfect so she has a heavy wing; but the project is very near completion.
Work Date: 15th January 2022
