Our very valuable amphibious plane needs a new engine and propeller. This plane besides saving many lives connects us to 90% of the Jungle communities we serve. Please consider supporting us for this project.
The price is for the IO-540-C4B5 engine on exchange, we will need a core deposit in the amount of $21,600 which would be refunded as soon as we return our core to the factory and they will issue the credit back to us.
Our propeller is a three blade Hartzell model HC-E3YR-1RLF.
Because of required AD's we must send the propeller to the US for the work of overhauling it (This cost is estimate for the service and shipping)
Thank God we have raised so far $14,000 dollars but will require the full amount before we can have an engine shipped to Peru
To keep our aircraft safe and according to regulations we must overhaul or replace the engines and propellers at intervals of hours or calendar times,
The engine for the amphibious plane is already 14 years old and we are obligated to change it for an overhauled/rebuilt or new one.
The propeller is also past is 6 years service time limit.
