Sport Plane LLC is helping abanadoned Kitfox builders with
technical support and parts to complete their projects.
Now as an OEM for Rotax Engines, they are able to supply the
engine configured for the Kitfox install. SP LLC is also
working closely with Eric Tucker of Kodiak Research Ltd and the EAA
on a preferred pricing program to help those builders who prepaid
for engines and did not receive that engine. "If we can put
together a bulk one-time buy, we will extend a special price."
"The preferred pricing
will depend upon the size of that one-time buy, as Rotax may also
participate with a price break," Tucker said. "We realize that
builders eligible for the program may be reluctant to spend more
money for an engine they've already paid for. But at least it gives
them a discount option on a new engine that otherwise would not be
available. However, escrow accounts would be used to safeguard a
"If there are people out there who just do not have the
financial wherewithal to take advantage at this time, we may be
able to help them somewhere down the road, but it won't be to the
same discount level, as the discount will be leveraged by the size
of this one-time engine buy. I would ask people to keep their
paperwork and documents if they feel they may wish to take
advantage of any future discounts."
Those that were affected are encouraged to contact Sport Plane
LLC by December 16th if interested in taking part of this program.
They have also established relationships with other vendors to
help provide parts to complete Skystar projects.
