    Guy in Fairbanks has one, not flying, a project. He is an A&P currently teaching at UAF Aviation Tech program at FAI Int'l. If that helps, pm me and I'll give you a name.

    I just e-mailed the guy in MASS to see if he is still there.
    We have a local guy who really knows and flies Bird Dogs but he is buried in work right now. I can only talk to him for a few seconds at a time as he loads his planes. I am sure it is irritating for him.

    Lee Budde in Big Lake has been flying an L-19 for decades. He owns and operates an aircraft parts manufacturing company there and might be able to give you some info. https://airforms.biz/
