Szekely Aircraft Engine


Szekely Aircraft Engine

Szekely aircraft engines are 3 cylinder radial engines built in Holland, Michigan in the 1920s and 30s. They were used to power aircraft such as the Rearwin Junior, Curtiss-Wright Junior, and Taylor H-2. Often criticized for reliability issues and design flaws many were replaced with better engines in their original airframes. Few examples still exist but a museum quality example is on display in the Holland Museum in Holland, Michigan.
