This product is synonymous with the Sky-Tec name, The Original Flyweight™, provides unmatched value in Lycoming replacement starters. These high torque Sky-Tec starters are built with permanent magnet motors that provide consistently reliable performance and twice the spin of old heavyweight OEM starters resulting in faster and easier engine starts; especially improving hot engine start performance.

They call these “Flyweight starters” because they are ultra-light at just 7.8 pounds and also ultra-light in price compared to other models. Sky-Tec Starters are tactically engineered for Lycoming Engines.
