Aero-TV: Doing It Diesel Style - Glasair's New Diesel Offering
Glasair Makes A Commitment To Alternative Powerplants
ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell saw and reported on a lot of
interesting things at Sun ‘n Fun 2014, and one of these was a Glasair
with a diesel engine in front of the firewall.
Glasair Aircraft Production Manager, Benjamin Rauk, explained that Glasair
is well aware of the challenges being imposed by the need to find
alternative fuels. To face this challenge, they have chosen the Continental
Centurion 2.0s diesel engine.
Rauk said they are expecting performance numbers to be similar to the 180
H.P. Lycoming powered versions of the airplane with the big difference
being in lower fuel consumption. They are expecting the fuel burn to
decrease by 3 to 4 gallons per hour.
Rauk goes on to explain some of the difference in the installation and
operation of the diesel engine. He understands that these differences will
be new to homebuilders and Glasair will be providing complete customer
support. This video offers the chance to take a look at technology that is
moving into both factory-built and amateur-built aircraft. Industry leaders
say that diesel will be the technology of the future.
