Start-up of John Cournoyers Spartan Executive

     Yesterday morning saw the start-up and engine run of John Cournoyers Spartan Executive. The airplane had not moved under its' own power since 1992. John had the engine majored in the meantime.

They had a fuel pump/transfer problem that only allowed them to run the engine for a few minutes on the header tank, before running that tank dry.

John keeps a watchful eye on the Spartans' engine.

     Today, a new pump in place, that problem was resolved and they were able to run the engine for several minutes. Coming soon is the gear swing.
