Austro Engine wins EU "Clean Sky" programme

Eurocopter, Austro Engine, Megachrome and TEOS Powertrain Engineering set up cooperation to decrease future helicopter fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Eurocopter as a major European helicopter manufacturer decided to increase the range of the EC 120 by significantly reducing the fuel consumption up to 40 % with using turbo charged diesel engines running on aviation jet fuel (e.g. Jet-A1, JP-8)

To achieve this goal EADS Eurocopter decided to choose Austro Engine, Megachrome and TEOS Powertrain Engineering as partners. Austro Engine particularly is experienced in installing Jet-A1 powered turbo diesel engines into general aviation aircraft.

This cutting edge technology is partly funded by the European "Clean Sky" Programme.
