The IHFF engineering team have been extremely busy over the winter months completing the maintenance and annual inspections of our fleet of aircraft. This has included 50-hour inspection of Chipmunk EI-HFA (168) and annual inspections of EI-HFB (169) and EI-HFC (170).
Keeping historic aircraft like the Chipmunks in the air is a challenging task and it’s a testament to the dedication of our volunteer engineering team that these aircraft are maintained in such an excellent condition. Work also continues on the annual inspections of Boeing Stearman EI-HFD and the Iolar EI-ABI and we hope to see these back in the air very soon. While there has been a lot of hands-on maintenance completed on the aircraft, an equal amount of work has been completed in the background developing and improving the airworthiness system of the IHFF.
