The current issue of Aerospace International magazine is showing a photograph of what they call the Security Aircraft Corporation 5-5-125 radial engine. (page 4 on the link below)

A quick google search shows very few mentions of this, but does refer to Walter Kinner: do any of our members have any other information on this engine, and the actual title of the company?

The official name seems to be Security National Aircraft Corporation. It was started by W B Kinner around 1933 after he parted ways with Kinner Motors. Smith in "Aircraft Piston Engines" states that the engine was built in 1935, 5 cyl, 125hp, 1950 rpm, 4.8" bore, 5" stroke, 441 cu in displacement, and 355 lbs.

The engine was used in the Security Airster, which was basically a Kinner Sportster.
