April 26 , 2007 — Leading Edge Airfoils, a subsidiary of Wag-Aero, Lyons, Wisconsin, recently donated eight used 2-cycle aircraft engines and accessories for use by students in the EAA SportAir Workshops experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA) repairman inspection courses. The engines will significantly enhance the curriculum for the 16-hour course, which certificates E-LSA owners to perform the annual condition inspection on their airplanes.
"We?re extremely grateful to Brian Meyerhofer, Engine Service Supervisor at Leading Edge Airfoils for this generous donation," said EAA?s SportAir Workshop coordinator Mark Forss. "These engines will help many aircraft owners attain the expertise required to inspect their own airplanes, which will help to maintain a high level of safety and reduce their operating costs." Information about the Light Sport Repairman Inspection course is available at the SportAir Website.
