I got my Brodhead Pietenpol Association newsletter for the Second Quarter 2017. Great publication as usual. If you are not a member I suggest joining. Of course there were lots of pretty pictures and good articles.
 
Douwe's article on how to using aluminum tubing to dress up your cowling was well written. It reminds me that in my cocpit. I used PVC tubing cut into  sections and split to put on the sharp edge of the alumium around the cockpit. After putting the PVC on I covered it with Black foam plumbing insulation from the aviation section at Lowes and  covered that with Pleather and laced it on with holes drilled in the metal. The lacing was a US Army Bootlace!
 
Douwe's Tailwheel Control horn length article hit home. I am quite Glad I saw this, Mine was attached to a set of inside holes, thus the pedals were set up to over control my plane on the ground. Based on this article, I will reattach the rudder wires to the outer holes which are close to the width of the Rudder horns. This should result in neutral steering.
 
Clay Hammond's article on the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome fly-in has promted me to keep the newsletter informed about the fly-ins and events at the Old Kingsbury Aerodrome in South Texas. It is very similar to Old Rhinebeck and indeed has a Model T powered Pietenpol Scout!
 
Thanks Pat for the great newsletter. BTW I still like having it in paper.

My copy made it across the 2,067 miles from Brodhead to Oregon last week. Great articles and information, but the cover photo alone was worth it. Prospective Air Camper builders and pilots would do well to study that photo in detail, as it captures the airplane's classic lines and geometry and is crisp enough to answer a lot of questions about building details. The fact that the photo was taken in flight tells a bit about what size the cockpit is and how tall the windscreens should be, but best of all it conveys the Piet flying experience as well as a photo can. You can look at the Ford engine and mentally set the airplane at the airspeed it's going and the engine at the RPM it's turning and you're there.
