The Alternative Engine Round-Up Finds a New Home
Belted Air Power’s RV-6 has been flying since 1996 with a converted 4.3-liter Chevy Vortec V-6 and has attended every Alternative Engine Round-Up, with Jess Meyers presenting a forum.
CONTACT! Magazine’s 8th Annual Alternative Engine Round-Up, normally held at the tiny airport in Jean, Nevada, has outgrown its home and is moving to Marysville, California, to be held in conjunction with the Golden West Regional Fly-In & Airshow, June 10 to 12, at the Yuba County Airport (MYV).

In keeping with the tradition that Round-Up will always be a free event for those who fly in with a display aircraft, attendees who bring to the event an experimental (homebuilt) aircraft that is powered by an “alternative engine,” and put their plane on display with all the others, will have admission for themselves and their passengers waived for the day. Preregistration is required to take advantage of this offer and can be done by visiting the CONTACT! Magazine website. In addition to aircraft on display, Round-Up will devote an entire day to educational forums focused on alternative engines, including automobile conversions and propellers. The forums are free and don’t require any preregistration.
