The Stall Warning Assembly

The stall warning vane is a unique part of the left-wing leading edge. There isn’t one on the right side. With the parts now primed, I was able to build the microswitch assembly for the stall warning. Here are a series of pictures showing the progress:

The first task is to rivet the plate-nuts onto the main bracket. These are used to fasten the stall warning assembly to the special rib made for mounting this assembly to the wing.

The last task in preparation of the stall warning is riveting the plate-nuts onto the access-plate-doubler that will go around the a square hole in the bottom skin. The plate-nuts are used to fasten an access panel to cover the hole. This panel may be removed after the airplane is completely built to gain access to the stall-warning assembly for inspection or maintenance.
