More than 60 New ‘Hints for Homebuilders’ on the Way
September 25, 2008 — With some 50 new videos shot during AirVenture and another 13 taped over the past weekend, EAA’s wildly popular Hints for Homebuilders series is well-stocked with fresh episodes into the foreseeable future. Charlie Becker, EAA director of member programs, reports that EAA captured 13 new hints with Brian Carpenter of Rainbow Aviation Services this past weekend at the EAA aviation center. EAA is hosting for Rainbow Aviation’s 120-hour Light-Sport Repairman Maintenance training course.
“We’re always on the lookout for new, time- and money-saving hints to share with other EAA members,” Becker said. “I have to say that the hints Brian did over the weekend are some of the best stuff we’ve done yet.”
Some of the areas Carpenter touches on include bending and flaring aluminum tubing; engine compression testing; composite prop repair; and Aeroquip hose end installation. Since their introduction in March 2008, EAA’s Hints for Homebuilders have been among the most-viewed features on EAA’s video player with NUMBER downloads.
“We’re extremely pleased with the response to our Hints for Homebuilders series,” Becker added. “It’s just the kind of information our members are looking for. They also speak to the essence of EAA, that is, people helping each other out by freely sharing information.”
