What do you do with the spring fiberglass covers?
Spring fiberglass covers?
We do not use fiberglass leaf springs. We make our landing gear from 7075-T6 Aluminum leaf spring. The kind you get from Grove Landing Gear but we make it ourselves.
There is fiberglass airfoil shaped fairings that go over the 7075 landing gear leaf. That still will be there. No difference
