Aileron Spar

I decided to go ahead and finish this wing as much as possible before hanging it from the ceiling. So, that means building the aileron next. It starts with the spar. It's actually very similar to the elevator spar. This one actually has a couple of extra stiffeners near the middle. This is because the nose ribs and the main ribs are not lined up with each other in the middle section. So now, each main rib has a stiffener, as well as each nose rib.

Total Time: 5.5 hrs.
