I recently submitted an article about a V8 conversion on a C172 that eliminated need for lead gas, 20% more efficient, better performance, 60% cheaper to operate and meets part 33 standards. We are developing a firewall forward kit for legacy cert aircraft, and also an EXP crate engine. …. Something I thought would be more of an interest from SA. Editor assigned a staff writer who contacted me by phone for their article, which was published a couple months later in SA. I was disappointed that they didn’t have much interest in the project or even my submitted article. I’m a published author and former DER and grasped the subject and covered some of the challenges with not only the engineering, but issues modifying a certified aircraft regulations related topics, which I believed many EAA members could relate.

So, my experience SA is not real interested in articles submitted.
