Hi all, hope this post finds you with fair skies and tailwinds.

Just a quick question this time......

Any ideas what aluminium series that the wingtip bows are constructed from?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi JJ,

Not sure of the specific American spec (possibly 303H-14), but the tip bow are definitely made of 1/2 hard industrial soft aluminium, this spec is non structural and can be weld repaired.
