    Lack of FWF workshops at Airventure (or SoortAir)

    Subject line should read "SportAir". Darn autocorrect!

    Been attending Oshkosh since 2009. I cannot recall ever seeing a comprehensive forum or workshop (as comprehensive as either can be in 45 minutes) focused on FWF. Maybe it's just too big or broad a topic?

    Does anyone know if SportAir or any other source offers weekend course or familiarization training in this area. Thinking less about engine & prop selection and more abut everything that "hangs off" in front (or out back if you've got a Pusher). I would think any of the RV guys could chat for 45 minutes and give a great overview of parts and pieces for their installations.

    Lycoming and Continental both have seminars running about an hour per seminar during airventure. Lycoming took apart an engine and then put it back together. Additionally they have servicing seminars etc. Additionally Mike Busch has seminars concentrating in engines that are very good.

    You may find some of those seminars will give you a good familiarization of engines.

    I've taken a few of the Continental seminars. Not too bad either.
