About us

A high-performance aeronautical piston engine must necessarily have an integrated mechanical reduction gear in order to be light, compact and efficient. It must also be cooled by liquid so as not to have thermal shocks in the different flight phases. This explains the success of the famous 912 engine which, for 30 years, has contributed to the tremendous advance in the field of leisure aeronautics!

Thanks to this motor, we have now reached to a level of high performance two-seater aircraft that can fly at more than 300 km / h while being economical, reliable and quiet.

Since 2016; the Chinese company ZONGSHEN, specialized in 2 and 4 stroke engines for scooters and motorcycles, to decide to break the monopoly of the 912 engine, in order to further improve the dynamics of our aeronautical leisure market.
