I got up early and went to the airfield and flew for an hour. At home, I pottered around doing little things until the early evening, when I went back to the airfield and did some circuits waiting for Jack to arrive. When he got there, I put the Flightstar away and went and looked at his ailerons. We routed the Bowden cable up to the bell crank, and then started looking at the ailerons themselves, as they're very sticky. We've ended up taking them off, and Jack'll clean up the signs of galling on the fittings and put them back together carefully. Hopefully he can get this all finished up in the next few days so he can get an airworthiness certificate sorted out before his daughter's wedding at the beginning of August (that's the goal, anyway).
