an uncompromising rebuild
The thrill of watching beautifully engineered machinery being restored to perfection. The privilege of witnessing craftsmen at work. Few things equal the excitement of participating in the rebirth of an important classic. Except perhaps the anticipation of enjoying it when it is complete.
From an engineering perspective the DC-6 is a very well understood design, every important aspect of which was developed and refined decades ago. Structural alloys used in its construction are still in production today and every system reveals the technical skills of its creators.
The Cloudmaster philosophy is to retain as much of the original aircraft as possible; a challenge akin to restoring a collectible motor car or a cherished yacht. All under the watchful eye of a demanding international regulator and in accordance with the highest aviation standards.
And having done it before, the Cloudmaster team is well equipped to meet that challenge.
