About Hangar 9 Aeroworks
This page created December 1998
Hangar 9 Aeroworks is a personal website created to celebrate sport aviation and promote resource and information sharing among airplane enthusiasts. It was "established" in December of 1998. The name comes from the fact that I once rented hangar number 9 at the Frederick Municipal Airport, in Frederick Maryland. I'm now located at a private airstrip in Virginia where I built a new "Hangar 9." I hope the information contained here will be helpful and entertaining to others who share my interests in sport aviation in general and Stinson and Aeronca airplanes in particular.
Hangar 9 Aeroworks is not a commercial enterprise. Like my other aviation activities, I do this for fun. The small amount of revenue generated by advertising on the website helps to offset some of the increasing costs of the website. Donations are welcome.
I should also mention that Hangar 9 Aeroworks is in no way affiliated with Hangar-9, the company that makes radio control model aircraft. Hangar-9 has some neat stuff - so if you are interested in radio controlled model aircraft, by all means visit Hangar-9 at: http://www.hangar-9.com/
This website was initially created in December 1998 using Netscape Composer, with technical assistance from my (then) twelve-year-old daughter Joanna, the original self-taught webmaster in the family. Joanna has now graduated from college and is a fashion illustrator and designer in New York City. For many years I've been using Microsoft FrontPage as my HTML editor. As of September 2016, with the help of my daughter, I am upgrading to a more modern web editor, Blue Griffon.
Finally, I must mention that I can assume no responsibility for how information on this website is used. While I try my best to provide accurate information for aviation hobbyists, this website is in no way an official source of aviation information. It is based on my own experiences and I think it may be helpful and entertaining, but I am not an FAA certificated mechanic. Use at your own risk. Always follow FAA (or your country's) regulations and, where appropriate, have your work supervised by an FAA certified mechanic.
