Truyeart LS1 Engine for his RV-10 Starts for the first time!
Another Geared Drives LS1 engine package for RV-10 roars to life for the
very first time! The engine starts easily and runs at low RPM since it is
not good for it to run without the load of a propeller on it. We run it
long enough to test the systems, check for leaks, test the PSRU etc. At the
very end of the video you can see the breather on the PSRU kick over the
little bit of overage of oil as it seeks its natural level in the gearbox.
This is normal for a first run up.
Aerochia LT-1 : The First Flight
The LT-1 made its first flight Friday afternoon May 14th, 2010 at
Jacqueline Cochran regional airport in Thermal California. Test Pilot Len
Fox was enlisted last minute to make the maiden flight after Darryl
Greenamyer was sidelined with a rib injury. Len spent the morning reviewing
the aircraft with designer/builder Andy Chiavetta and performing engine
runups. After a quick lunch at El Grecko Loco (which definitely did not
help settle any pre-flight butterflies) it was back to the field for a fast
taxi test, and followed shortly by its first flight.
Aerochia would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Len for making the
last minute trek from Oregon for the first flight as well as Penny at
Tradition Aviation for giving us the run of hanger A.

Ravin 500 N913RA_0001.wmv
N913RA is a Ravin 500 kit from South Africa. I provided some assistance,
paint, and design for this aircraft from Jan 09 until it flew on July 22
2009. Its powered by a GM LS1 fuel injected V8, so i like to call it the
Ravin 500 Super Sport. I built a custom front cowling to fit the automotive
engine, and did many many hours of fiberglass work on this #2 Ravin in the
Western Hemisphere. This one is actually Kit #13 and is now one of the 20
or so flying Ravin aircraft all around the world.
Roger Followell's Geared Drives LS1 Engine for Legendary P-51
Bud Warren starts the Geared Drives the LS1 Chevrolet firewall forward
engine package with Geared Drives PSRU prior to delivery to its owner,
Roger Followell. I heard the engine start up so I grabbed my camera...this
was the very first start and it did start first time. We are running it
gently since there is no load on the engine.
Gipson's RV-10 with Geared Drives LS1 Engine Runup
Bill Gipson of Conroe, TX runs his RV-10 with the Geared Drives PSRU and
LS1 Firewall Forward Package built by Bud Warren. Notice that the engine
runs great at any RPM. We are expecting fuel burn rates from this
combination in the range of 7-15 GPH. With torque multplication throught
the Geared Drives PSRU the performance will be astounding! Be sure and
notice that there is no gear noise at all heard with this redrive, just the
smooth throaty sound of a Corvette engine.

challenage as some of the more keen eye'd people will have noticed the side
shaking , yes we could have cured it with better frame better wheels etc
but i like its a shit bike n still is.
