Aero Fabricators, the manufacturing division of The Wag-Aero Group, has received FAA approvals for the Piper J-3 Front and Rear Spars that are direct replacements for Piper J-3 Front, OEM P/N 11233, and J-3 Rear, OEM P/N 11223.
Spars are available in both Sitka Spruce for $750 each and Douglas Fir for $675 each, which includes two coats of Spar Varnish.
Sitka Spruce has been a standard in the industry for many years and is strong, flexible and lightweight. It has become more expensive, company officials said. Aero Fabricators has found that Douglas Fir can be used as an alternative. Douglas Fir is less expensive and stronger, but the only drawback is that it weighs slightly more than Sitka Spruce.
