The last FAA airworthiness certificate for our P-63 expired in 1976, and at that time the airframe had less than 370 hours logged on it. Low hours, but the years of being stored among the elements had taken its toll and the menace of corrosion began to rear its ugly head. The Dixie Wing has embarked on a 15+ year restoration and we are nearly done. The aircraft has been through its first engine run and high speed taxi tests and now it's ready for its first flight. We will be bringing in experts for final inspections and a test pilot for its first flight THIS DECEMBER! Then it's off to the paint shop! The costs of the final inspections, bringing in the test pilot and final checkouts will be approximately $2,500. There will be a live Facebook broadcast of its first flight!
