Avgas Aircraft Engines
The last couple of years development in aircraft engines has been more or less concentrating on diesel engines. We have seen one off installations to fully developed engine production lines. A number of companies are active on this market primarily due to major concern of long term availability and the relative high price of AVgas (Europe). JET fuel (avtur) is available worldwide and can be used in diesel engines. This fuel can also be made of renewable sources (biomass) which contribute to a cleaner environment.
But as there are lots of Avgas engines still being produced and consequently used and installed by kit aircraft builders, we spend some time with Lycoming and Continental type of aircraft engines.
