A new generation of advanced turbine engines for light aircraft and UAV applications
Turbine Aeronautics is pleased and excited to announce our program to develop a family of new generation "low horsepower" turbine engines. Beginning with the TA200TP, a state of the art 200hp turboprop engine, we aim to design, assemble and deliver a family of technologically advanced, small gas turbine engines to the recreational aviation and UAV/drone markets.
Our family of turboprop engines is intended to include 120hp, 200hp and 300hp versions, all based on a similar design and all offering fuel efficiencies not readily available from any other manufacturer of this class of turbine engine.
Our clean sheet turbine engine designs should offer acquisition costs that will be competitive with comparable normally aspirated piston engines. Further, these turbine engines will offer a fuel economy that should be competitive with their piston counterparts. Finally, when compared to the existing equivalent piston engines available to the target markets, our engines should offer significantly reduced maintenance frequency and costs, offer far fewer moving parts and with planned TBOs of 3,000 hours, will give a ~50% TBO advantage over their piston counterparts.
With these clear value-added features, combined with many more articulated here on our website, we feel that by offering significant cost, safety and operational advantages, our range of engines will be enthusiastically embraced in the recreational aviation and UAV/drone marketplaces.
