    The Seminole has manually operated, four position, single slotted flaps.
    The propellers are counter-rotating, with the left engine rotating clockwise, and the right engine rotating counterclockwise (hence it is an LO-320-A1H6; the left engine is an O-360-A1H6). 
    Each engine has two magnetos. Each powers four spark plugs per engine, for a total of eight spark plugs on each engine (two spark plugs per cylinder).

    I apologize for the typo. The right engine is an LO-360-A1H6, not 320.
