Build a 3.3L Corvair at the May 18-20 Workshop/Open house.

Builders;

.

We are getting closer to our next event: FlyCorvair/SPA – Joint Workshop/Open house, May 18,19,20. We have already signed up builders of 2700-3000cc Corvairs for 1/2 of the test run slots, but we are reserving almost all of the other slots for 3.3L “Engine in a Box” complete kits. These kits are on the shelf at SPA. If you are considering using one in your plane, the workshop represents a golden opportunity to purchase a kit in advance, and come to the worksop to learning, assembly, and test run. On Sunday you will head home with a great American made motor, a lot of new skills and understanding, and some new friends to boot.

.

Get a look at all the links to stories, videos, and pictures of 3.3s. If you decide than you will take advantage of the workshop to make a quantum leap forward on your plane project, call Rachel at the SPA engine hotline to get more pricing and information about the workshop. 904-626-7777.
