Hi, my inspector wants us to carry out some minor re skinning on the underside of the tailplane on G-EITE. What grade, thickness, "trade name" if it applies etc. of metal should I be using, and can anybody recommend a supplier? Many thanks

Hi Chris,

the skins on the round type tailplane are 2024-T3-025, the 025 being the thickness in thou.... available in various sizes from LAS. Alternatively you can use the UK spec of L163 22swg which is the same spec but slightly thicker and probably some how more expensive!!

Cheers
Pete

Hi Pete,

Sorry, did not see your reply earlier. Many thanks for that, we are hoping one new panel will do the job, as it appears to just be some paint peeling off.
