Hi.
In the begining I must say, that my english is not excellent.
I am writing here, because i want to introduce to You some aircraft piston engine factory, that I am working in. Factory is named "WSK-PZL Kalisz". I am a construction engineer in this factory and i am responsible for develop of our engine. This engine is the ASz-62IR, a far develop russian license of american Cyclone 1820. This engine is our main product. The factory is located in city Kalisz in Poland, Europe. I didn't find any information about our factory on AEHS, so probably some of You don't know that it exist. We were producting various types of aircraft engines since 1950-s. Here is our website:

In the good times we were building about 1000 ASz [read: ash] engines per year. The production was increased from 1966, when it start, to 1970-80 when it reached a peak. Then in the 80's a social changes in Poland and soviet republics has began and our production started to decreased. When our main recipient, a Soviet Union collapsed, the production fall to several dozen per year. In modern times we are producting about several engines per year mostly to ex soviet republic, China, Kazakhstan, Korea. We have customers in US too. I cannot post any pictures from the production, but i can post some photos from our factory museum.

Very nice.
I tried the english on the website, but it didn't seem to work.
You should talk to the people in charge of marketing at your company, about posting pictures on this website, showing the production of your engines.
It may help sell more engines in the US, many people come to the AEHS website for information on aircraft engines. This would be like free advertizement.

Hello, Is your company doing anything with the M14? I do some work with the Nanchang CJ6 some customers replace the HS6 with the higher horsepower M14.
