Funk Aircraft Works is a partnership owned and operated by brothers Bill and John Funk. Their business is located near Morden Manitoba Canada less than 20 miles from the US border.
Bill and John are pilots and aircraft maintenance engineers with more than 40 combined years of experience in aircraft maintenance. They have worked on various types of aircraft ranging from the small Aeronca Champ to the large Boeing 727. They have also been involved in the construction of numerous homebuilt aircraft such as the Avid Flyer, Midget Mustang, Lancair 360, Glasair III and the RV 4. Of all the aircraft work that has been undertaken by the Funk Bothers, the most rewarding has been the homebuilt aircraft projects. This has allowed them to express their creativity and their meticulous attention to detail. They are both considered craftsmen in their own right.
Have you considered building a homebuilt aircraft? Do you like the performance and the individuality that homebuilt aircraft offer that production aircraft do not. Maybe you do not have the time, the tools, the space, or the expertise to construct your own aircraft. Maybe you have started a homebuilt project but did not realize the time and effort that would be required to complete the project. Let us help! You purchase the homebuilt kit that you desire, or send us the project that you started and we will complete the construction for you. Our shop rates are very competitive and we will give your aircraft the same care and attention that we give to our own.
We also specialize in the restoration of fabric covered aircraft. If your aircraft is due for fabric replacement and refurbishing you’ve found the right shop.
All fabric replacement jobs include a full airframe inspection. When the old fabric is removed, the airframe is cleaned and thoroughly inspected and all necessary repairs are made and parts are replaced as required. The fuselage tubing is protected with epoxy primer before the new Dacron fabric is installed. If required we can also complete extra work such as interior retrofits, or other modifications. We can also include a 100 hour/annual inspection.
Our job is not complete until our customer is happy!
