Chapter 322 Teddy Build : 14 June @ Krugersdorp

Jun
18

On Saturday morning we got off to a slow start and found ourselves a little baffled at the landing gear plans. All eager to get going, we have very quickly realised that we will need to devise a new plan for the metal work that needs to be done. As this is not a kit plane and all parts have to be manufactured and then fitted together perfectly, we are planning to split the work into what Neville cleverly termed - a fabrication team and an assembly team.

C-Wolf Project visit

May
17

On Saturday 17 May, about 50 EAA Chapter 322 members had the pleasure of visiting Wolfgang Vormbaum’s engineering works in New Doornfontein to see the progress of his C-Wolf A.U.V. project. This is a really impressive project with brilliant engineering and thinking being invested in this innovative aircraft. Wolfgang and his son Stefan are members of EAA Chapter 322 Johannesburg. Wolf’s wife Cheryl supplied all comers with a delicious breakfast during the visit.

C-Wolf Project Visit

Event-Date: 
Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 09:00

On 17 May, EAA Chapter 322 will be having a project visit to member Wolfgang Vormbaum's C-Wolf/ Boeremeisie build project. This C-Wolf is an eye- opening venture that has been planned by an amazingly sharp engineering brain. As an aviator of more than half a century, I recently visited Wolf's place with my devoted and equally longstanding aviator friend (General) Brian Stableford who said he had half expected to see an amateurish experimental project. Brian was highly impressed with the technicalities of this advanced project.

Designing and Building Simulators

May

by Rob Jonkers

Ever wondered about the usability of a flight simulator as being close enough to resemble real flight? Well, with computing power and flight control technologies available today, the ability to achieve the realism is getting ever closer. My own dabbling in simulators has been around since Microsoft released their very first MSFS back in the late 80s with only Meig’s field in Chicago as the airport available to fly from using a green flat earth terrain mesh.
