Aircraft Restoration

This is the story of N1806G, which was lovingly restored from the assorted parts into the fine Citabria that she is today. This was all done in AeroDynamic's own workshop by Al and Robin.


This is where everything began, a bare skeleton and boxes of parts.

The frame painted and internal ribs fabricated from scratch by Al
 

The cowling and firewall has been made and fitted to the fuselage. 

The fuselage has been painted white and masked out for color.
 

Our new Citabria color is maroon! 

Out of the shop and tape removed.
 

The engine has been installed. 

Fuel tank installed prior to the wing skinning.
 

Fabric riveted to the wing ribs.
