Above, three Pietenpol Air Camper Corvair Mounts. You can read about these at our
www.FlyCorvair.net March 25, 1013 page as well as at our
November 12, 2012 www.FlyCorvair.net page.
In the 1990s, I built two Air Campers and flew one for a number of years. During this time, I made three different
Motor Mounts for the aircraft to test CG and thrust lines. The Motor Mounts we build today are based on this information,
30 additional Mounts I've built since then, and our in-depth weight and balance tests on 30 Pietenpols completed in 2010-2012.
These Mounts are designed to raise the thrust line slightly and have the proper length to work with larger pilots and
stay within the design's 15-20" CG range.
We hand build each Mount in our own shop. They are completely finished welded, available powdercoated and ready to
mount on the airplane. They're
Tig welded airtight and do not require any further internal corrosion protection. They're made of 4130 aircraft
tubing, and have been tested to G limits in excess of the airframe's rating.
