No. 1: Will a handheld rubber ducky antenna suffice for airport traffic use?


Barely!
Quote:

No. 2: Can an external antenna be mounted 2-3ft from the engine?


Mount your antenna on the bottom, attach it to a round alum ground plane riveted to the cross members there.
Quote:

No. 3: If mounted on Lexon, does the antenna need a ground plane, & if so, how large should it be & would the ground plane need to be grounded to the air frame?

I use a hand held using a Ram Mount with the antenna sticking through the wind shield with a rubber grommet in the windshield. It has worked real well except the wind noise. I have started using a leather mic cover with a tiny hole , this has made me more clear. But the radio itself and 8" or so antenna works well

Check with a local ham radio club.    They they have testing equipment they might think it's a unique enough project they might come out and help you for free.


To find a club maybe check with arrl.org and you should be able to find or search for a ham radio club near you
