1977 Aquila


I built this airplane with my dad at age 15 (we built 3 at once) and flew the heck out of it from that time until I was in college and even when I was living in the Washington, DC area in the mid 80s and in TPG TD contests in the early 90s. At some point I added the Skip Miller modification with the sheeting on the bottom of the D-box to change the airfoil and improve performance. The fuselage still looks great with the K&B Super Poxy paint job but the wings need recovering and she could use an overall going through for air worthiness. Id love to see this go to a good home where someone will restore and fly her.

I have restored many Aquilas, like you I learned to fly on a aquila in the late 70s, would be an honor to give the old girl the attention she deserves
