Pusher Taxi

The Parker Pusher Project is one step closer to being able to fly once again.

This restoration has been a long time in the works and the taxi test was the next major step to completing the project.

"We've just got to add some more bracing wires among other things and get the inspector out here and we'll be ready to go," says WAAAM Chief Pilot Ben Davidson.

A key element of the taxi test was ensuring that the aircraft propelled itself in a strait fashion once started up. Older aircraft like this Curtiss Pusher have no major steering ability while on the ground. 

Check out the video of the taxi test here.
