Cockpit Floor

Despite Covid lockdown measures being in place for much of 2020, the team have managed to build the cockpit floor. Using original Airspeed design drawings, materials and techniques, the floor is a faithful reproduction of the orginal parts.

Our aim is to complete the Cockpit section this year, ready to display in 2022. Lots of work ahead!
