News, facts, and comments on the coming revolution for piston-engine aircraft.
In 1998, one diesel engine flew on a converted airplane for the first time since 1945. Today, close to 4,000 singles and twins are flying. This is the beginning of a worldwide trend which will eventually allow a rebirth of the piston-engined aircraft, around new specs and new missions.

First US Twin Star Delivered.
Diamond s first US delivery of its exciting new DA42 Twin Star was made Friday at AOPA Expo, to Mr. Henry Van Kesteren of St. Petersburg, Florida. The aircraft was delivered by Mike Bayne of Mid Atlantic Diamond and Art Spengler of Premier Aircraft Sales. “I wanted the aircraft for its cutting edge technology,” said Mr. Van Kesteren, who has accumulated over 38,000 hours flying since joining the US Army Air Corps in 1942. “This really changes everything,” said Peter Maurer, President of Diamond Aircraft. “The Twin Star represents an absolute quantum leap, with its modern all carbon airframe, Garmin G1000 and TAE 1.7 Centurion turbo diesel engines. With twin engines, known ice certification and single lever throttles, the DA42 sets new standards with regard to safety and ease of operation.” Diamond aircraft, 11-3-05.

Every month: news, facts, and comments on the coming revolution for piston-engines aircrafts between 130 and 400 HP: Retrofitting a diesel engine to run on Jetfuel or Kerosene, reduce Gallons/Hour by some 30%, eliminate ignition systems (magnetos, spark plugs) and their problems, eliminate mixture control, increase TBO to 2,400-3,000 hours, increase performance between 6,000 and 12,500 ft., and drastically reduce Operating Costs.
The letter is intended for piston engines aircraft owners, manufacturers, fleet operators and FBOs, re-manufacturers of engines for these aircrafts, manufacturers of engine components and ancillaries, and all professionals acting in decisions of engine exchange or refitting at TBO, in North and South America, Pacific Rim, African continent, and all parts of the world were Avgas, Mogas, Kerosene and Jetfuel are available.
