Picking up from the end of AER 2003, the student delves into the theory and practice of sheet metal repair and construction. This includes subjects such as bend allowance, load calculations, layout, forming, and riveting. Starting with the different metal alloys, fasteners, and tools used for construction, the student expands their sheet metal skill-set by learning to fabricate simple parts, then building a small wing spar section. At the conclusion of the course, repair processes are discussed and practiced on their individual projects.
