Default Hiring people to work on the plane

Buyer be ware.

I did it

The work was sloppy at best and dangerous at worst.

Check with the people the person has worked for.

Just because someone has built a plane or almost built one means NOTHING.

Default Re: Hiring people to work on the plane

The latest report i have from someone that saw the twin engine cozy that is being converted to a single engine.

perfectly good spar cut up and removed.
Fuel tanks trashed.

new spar is crunched at one end

new spar does not match up for bolt holes to wings.

The nacelles that were installed for the engines were not structural and could have been removed causing no harm to the spar and fuel tanks.

Relatively EZ change.

if the plane was built well to begin with, it should have been left alone.

I tried to warn the person. Now it is a big mess.
