seminar provided by the technicians at JabiruUSA. The
purpose of the seminar was to train those aircraft builders
that have purchased Jabiru engines how to properly install
their firewall forward components. The Zodiac CH 601
and STOL aircraft were used as the classroom
demonstration examples for the engine installation.
