Verner Radial Engine

Verner Radial Engine

Verner Motor showed off its new 9-cylinder radial engine in Steve Wolf's one-off scaled-down aerobatic airplane. The new engine makes 158 hp for three minutes and 136 hp continuously. It should be a good fit for homebuilders looking for that vintage look.

The engine weighs 238 pounds and costs $27,500 delivered to any US port of entry the customer desires. The engine is made in the Czech Republic. The complete line also includes 3, 5, and 7-cylinder models.

David Prizio

Dave Prizio has been plying the skies of the L.A. basin and beyond since 1973. Born into a family of builders, it was only natural that he would make his living as a contractor and spend his leisure time building airplanes. He has so far completed three—a GlaStar, a Glasair Sportsman, and a Texas Sport Cub—and is helping a friend build an RV-8. When he isn’t building something, he shares his love of aviation with others by flying Young Eagles or volunteering as an EAA Technical Counselor. He is also an A&P mechanic, Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR), and a member of the EAA Homebuilt Aircraft Council.
