WW1 Nieuport 24: AIM Student Project Chesapeake VA: rotecradial

AIM stands for Aviation Institute of Maintenance and they have nine academies in total covering the US. For a list of locations and for a review of scholastic services provided for the aviation industry please goto

Each of the nine academies have undertaken to build a WW1 Aircraft and eight of the academies will be using a Rotec Radial. As time progresses each of the projects utalising a Rotec will have a separate page devoted to progress made. These pages will contain major milestones reached by the students working on their specific projects.
