Deltahawk diesel engine

That’s really cool. It will be interesting to see how it holds up in real life application.

The youtube comments are filled with people calling this engine vaporware so I’ll also be interested to see if it turns out that it’s actually not and that it’s actually interesting. The top voted comment points put they talk only in generalities and aren’t giving any numbers:

Those who have been along since the 90s or earlier will attest to the vaporware. It was vaporware for 30 years and written off by most people. Today it’s obviously alive and very real. If it actually holds together longer than 50h in an aircraft is the question. Perhaps is takes an additional 30 years to answer that question?

Quite an interesting development for sure!

Wonder if;
- it will affect a single DA42 sale, as that seems to be the only twin selling
- if after Piper doing all the work, expecting to sell new planes, the only tangible result is some STC for existing airframes…it would still be a good outcome for many reasons.

It’d be nice to know the price tag for the engines and TBO or TBR. If they’re prohibitively expensive, they won’t sell in the US, no matter the fuel consumption.

Also the US market doesn’t like restrictive practices like no 3rd party parts manufacture.
