Fast forward another ten years, I was back in Italy and in a semi-stable situation at work, it was time again to recover the ancient remains and make a plan.
The situation was a bit worse than before. The fuselage was broken, the wings were damaged, the stabilizers were gone and a lot of other minor issues were found.
While the wings were considered damaged beyond repair, I decided to try to repair the fuselage, adding reinforcements to avoid future breakdowns in the same sensitive area. A number of improvements were also included, requiring some extensive reconstruction, which in turn removed damaged areas. The result was a mostly new design, the third one (hence the “C” in the name). The A1-C project will soon be ready to fly, follow its progress on the main page of the project here
