One Rivet At A Time



An important message from our Operations Manager.



Dear All,

I’m pleased to announce that the project to build our own plane is to go ahead. We have ordered a Zenair CH750 STOL (Short Take Off & Landing) and work has started to equip one corner of the hangar to carry out the work. Some of you may have attended our ‘Pull A Rivet’ session in February, this was presented by Jonathan and Patricia Porter of Metal Seagulls, and it is they who will provide the aircraft as the UK distributor.

The project, now named ‘One Rivet At A Time,’ will enable everybody to get involved, be it to place a single rivet or as a major contributor to the workload, those with an impairment or able bodied, all are welcome. I hope you agree this is an extremely exciting project, and one that doesn’t come along every day. We have lots of external support, it is now time for us to show these supporters and the rest of the world that we can make ‘One Rivet at a Time’ a success.


So this is a “Call to Arms." If you would like to get involved in any capacity, you are cordially invited to an introductory meeting to be held here at Blackbushe on Thursday 2nd November at 18:00. I hope I have chosen a convenient time for as many of you as possible, but inevitably this will not suit everyone, so if you would still like to be involved but can’t join us on the day, please let me know and I will ensure you are registered to be kept informed.
During the meeting I will introduce the project, the aircraft and how we might organise the build. Hopefully some video content to ‘whet your appetite’, and obviously plenty of time to ask questions. Just to emphasise, we want to see anyone who would like to be involved, be it to place a single rivet or as a major contributor to the workload, those with an impairment or able bodied, all are welcome. I hope you agree this is an extremely exciting project, and one that doesn’t come along every day. We have lots of external support, it is now time for us to show these supporters and the rest of the world that we can make ‘One Rivet at a Time’ a success. I look forward to welcoming you to the team.
Regards
Brian Catchpoole
