Dolly and I flew down to Sebring this morning and had brunch on the restaurant porch with the Old Farts Flying Club. The club is an informal organization run by Roger Brown who maintains an Email list and chooses an airport restaurant for lunch each winter season Thursday. He follows up with a newsletter including photos of participants and their planes.
Today’s weather – strong crosswinds – reduced the attendance. Before Covid I’ve seen fifty to seventy planes fly in. Today we social distanced and masked. Dolly and I arrived early and picked an upwind table. The food, omelet and pancakes was delicious.
Considering there has been no formal advertising, sales of the aircraft Ignition Wire Guards is growing nicely just by word of mouth.
Until now, the only DKFL product available has been Guards for amateur built aircraft having four cylinder engines with automotive eight millimeter diameter ignition wires.
Currently the store is building inventory of Guards for five millimeter diameter ignition cables used with Slick and Bendix magnetos. Also, the product line is being expanded to include Guards for six cylinder engines in Amateur Built aircraft. They will be available in six colors to blend with engine or air baffle colors.
Today I finally organized the area where the aircraft Ignition Wire Guards and other parts are printed. The overhead filament spool rack is new. The 1/2″ PVC plumbing tube is sagging a bit under the weight of the filament. I may insert a metal rod reinforcement.
