Peculiarity of this new engine : 4-stroke, 4 cylinder horizontally opposed, spark ignition, air-cooled unit with reduction gera; power output greater than 60kW, weight less than 65 kg (ready to fly), high reliability and small overall dimension, due to reduction of components. Experimental tests demonstrate a remarkable weight to power ratio (1,02 kg/kW) comparable with the reference engine Rotax 912 UL-S (0,98 kg/kW).

Abstract

Peculiarity of this new engine : 4-stroke, 4 cylinder horizontally opposed, spark ignition, air-cooled unit with reduction gera; power output greater than 60kW, weight less than 65 kg (ready to fly), high reliability and small overall dimension, due to reduction of components. Experimental tests demonstrate a remarkable weight to power ratio (1,02 kg/kW) comparable with the reference engine Rotax 912 UL-S (0,98 kg/kW).
