Building your own airplane means dealing with parts, aluminum, wiring, instruments and making sure that corrosion does not show up years later when the aircraft is in service. Even more you will need to learn how to prepare and install an engine and propeller on the firewall.
The joy of building, pride of workmanship, the passion of flying, that is what building a kit can bring you. But at times or even after awhile the speed or enthusiasm with which you started out building your aircraft will begin to fade or it even grinds to a halt, unfortunately.
This is where Wheel and Wings from Lake City, FL can help you finish the project. They are Rotax, ULPower, Jabiru and Dynon certified to maintain and install those products.
Sometimes its hard to finish what has been started, think of space, time, confidence, other commitments sometimes unforeseen or you may have trouble finding where to start and need a helping, experienced hand. W&W is able to help with subparts or the whole kit and everything with it. They will get you on track with your kit in no time.
