Wicks Aircraft Supply will begin distributing its new 2010 catalog at this year’s Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In in Lakeland, Florida, slated for April 13-18. For the first time, the catalog, which is nearly 30% larger, is free.
This year there are hundreds of new products listed in a special New Products section. Builders will have an additional four aircraft designs for which they can procure complete materials kits for construction: Micro Mong, Zippy Sport, the M-19 Flying Squirrel, and the Pietenpol. A new section of the catalog addresses issues builders will want to consider before embarking on an aircraft construction project. To compliment the information in the catalog, Wicks has planned a wide range of builder workshops over the next 12 months dealing with welding, wood working, aluminum and the finishing process for tube and fabric aircraft.
Wicks officials said they will send out cases of the 234-page catalogs to EAA Chapters whose presidents submit requests indicating the quantities desired for chapter members.
