Building Time
The factory staff builds a Goose in less than 1000 Hours, with no special jigging or equipment. Homebuilder times will vary depending on builder experience. The many pre-molded parts, and composite construction, make the Goose a 'fast build' kit. To further cut time there are several Quick Build Options.
 
Engine options include Lycoming O-320, 160 - 180 hp; Jabiru 5100, 180 hp, and several builders were experimenting with auto conversions.
