Frank, the ideal way would be for us to fly the Pawnee to Poplar Grove airport which is only about 20 miles northwest of Sky Soaring and have Poplar Grove Airmotive rebuild the engine for us. They are a very reputable engine rebuild company.  In the event that we are not able to fly it there, we would have to remove the Pawnee engine ourselves and take it Poplar Grove for rebuild. When complete, we would pick it up and re-install it.
