I didn't say it was on the sign up page. The advanced group was sold out, but I'll be on the 250. Hope I can make it.

If you need a hand in getting some safety wire done let me know Friday morning. 8 years of aircraft maintenance with safety wiring in the most impossible places

Last year the CMRA rule book required a .032 minimum diameter. This year, there doesn't seem to be a specific requirement included in the rule book, but that may be an oversight...
