I am in the market for a used Ultralight (AULA) and I have found a Chinook I am interested in but I need some advice. I have spoken to ASAP and the current owner and the A/C can remain an AULA but it requires a new engine and weight and balance before I it can be registered by me.
Most if not all of the the mounts and cables, hoses, etc. are still on the body and I would like to put a Rotax 582 on the A/C. I have never mounted an engine so I am really getting into unknown territory.
What I need to know is what type of resources are available in and around the Kitchener/Waterloo, Guelph, Cambridge (South Western Ontario) for someone like myself? I am not looking for free help (although it would be nice) but I would like to know who is out there with some experience and who do you go to for help?
Any information any can offer me would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone has any reason why I should or should not consider a Chinook please let me know as well.
