OV 1 Mohawk hidden away.


Recommended Posts

I have been working in converting an AH1S Cobra back into a flying G model at our AAHF in Hampton. I finally took a break and was able to gain access to another one of their hangars....inside was an OV1 Mohawk. It was aquired in a trade a few years ago, and was flown in....been sitting neglected since then. The foundation would love to get it flying again but realize the funds, the time, parts and tech know how are lacking....accumulators, boost pumps, hydraulic pumps, squibs, fire bottles, etc...So it sits....and time marches on.post-180924-0-95424100-1569712233_thumb.jpeg

I used to own the cockpit section of 67-18907. I bought from a scrapper and spent a year or so restoring it. I used it as an attraction related to my business. There is a business in Florida Called Mohawk Technologies LLC in Lantana. The owner's Name is Paul Pefly. He helped provide a number of parts for my restoration. His access and expertise could be helpful to you.

They are getting really rare these days, especially flying once the AWAM museum shut down up in MN. Paul in FL is def a great person to contact when it comes to Mohawks. He's helped me find some odds and ends for ALSE/Seat related items. Wouldnt have my complete seat survival kit without his help. If youre also on Facebook, you can try posting about it in the OV-1 Mohawk group. I know this aircraft was shown by someone not too long ago that I guess is part of AAHF and when I asked if they will restore it he said there was no plans on it. Lots of guys in that group with the prior experience working on OV-1s and still down to do it.
