Hundreds of new products are listed in a special New Products section, the company says. A new welding section focuses on Lincoln welders and supplies, and there are numerous new items for aircraft panels. Wicks is also carrying an additional four aircraft designs for which builders can procure complete materials construction kits. These new designs include the Micro Mong, Zippy Sport, M-19 Flying Squirrel and the Pietenpol.
Further, Wicks will send out cases of its 234-page catalog to EAA chapters whose presidents submit requests indicating the quantities desired for chapter members.
A new section of the catalog addresses issues builders will want to consider before embarking on an aircraft construction project. To complement this information, Wicks has planned a wide range of builder workshops over the next 12 months dealing with welding, woodworking, aluminum and the finishing process for tube-and-fabric aircraft (check the web site for schedule updates).
