Grob 103 Refinish Project

March 28, 2019

A crew removed the sanding booth from Kellerman's hanger - we just have to sweep up the gelcoat and tidy up. The Grob 103 wings will be finished with polyurethane at a paint shop -- the ship should return to service later this Spring. The photo shows the booth - and then the area with the booth removed. (KiloKilo)

Grob 103 - Wings - Final Gelcoat Removal Phase

March 16, 2019

Richard Kellerman, Rolland Nakashima, and Scott Ensign were working on the Grob 103 restoration - all the gelcoat has been removed from the wings - here they are removing the crazed gelcoat from the control surfaces. A second session is planned for tomorrow to hopefully finish this task - then on to painting ! :-)

New Tow Pilot!

ASK-21 First Assembly

June 18, 2018

Brandywine Soaring club members jump for joy (well, most jumped) after completing the first assembly of their new ASK-21 two place glider. The team worked slowly and carefully - completing the process in just under two hours. Everyone is looking forward to checkouts and first flights in the beautiful new ship.

ASK-21 Arrives

June 06, 2018

BSA's new ASK-21 arrived at the field today. FAA paperwork and inspections are being completed ... and transition training will begin to allow members to use our beautiful new ship.
