AeroConversions introduces AeroVee 2.1

Sonex Aircraft, LLC announced the latest evolution in the AeroConversions product line this week with the introduction of the AeroVee 2.1 Engine Kit. AeroVee 2.1 is now the standard AeroVee engine kit, replacing the AeroVee 2.0. The AeroVee 2.1 continues the Sonex Aircraft and AeroConversions tradition of simple, elegant design.

Due to the increasing volume of AeroVee engine sales, Sonex and AeroConversions has been able to incorporate new features that enhance the already robust AeroVee design. The new AeroVee 2.1 features a purpose-built custom crankshaft that has a larger diameter and longer prop hub interface. This new design also eliminates the distributor drive gear and the racer spacer, making for an easier assembly. AeroVee 2.1 continues to use standard bearings, eliminating the need for custom bearings and allowing for easy replacement at overhaul time. All external steel conversion components are also now zinc plated for improved aesthetics and additional corrosion resistance.

All these enhanced features ship as standard equipment on all new AeroVee 2.1 Engine Kits, at the same great price of $6,495.

"Sonex Aircraft, LLC and its experienced team of designers are dedicated to continual improvement and enhancement of our wide range of light, efficient, and proven aircraft and engine products," remarked Sonex Aircraft, LLC CEO Jeremy Monnett. "The AeroVee Engine Kit has evolved into the most robust, simple, and economical conversion engine available at any price. We expect it will continue its rapid growth in popularity by offering the Best Performance Per Dollar in the market today for a wide range of sport aircraft requiring an 80 hp engine at a fraction of the purchase and operating costs of its competition."

The AeroVee 2.1 is a complete VW Conversion Engine Kit Package, by AeroConversions, a product line of Sonex Aircraft, LLC. The AeroVee 2.1 package is a 2180 cc, 80 hp aircraft engine that can be run on 100LL or auto fuel. The complete package weighs 161 lbs complete, and represents over 35 years of experience in pioneering and innovating VW engine conversions. All of the supplied components are brand-new, zero-time parts including conversion parts that meet high quality standards, machined out of solid billet, providing for the strongest and most consistent conversion components ever produced.

The AeroVee comes as a complete kit that you can assemble yourself in approximately 12 hours, with the aid of an AeroVee Assembly Manual and an instructional DVD. The AeroVee Assembly DVD is available for purchase separate from the engine kit to aid customers in their engine purchase decision. A complete AeroVee/Sonex Installation Guide is provided, along with free telephone and email technical support. An AeroVee engine on-line discussion group is also available. The AeroVee engine kit also includes the AeroConversions AeroCarb. Utilizing what hydraulic and pneumatic engineers call the "perfect flow passage," the AeroCarb achieves outstanding performance and versatility. AeroCarb's body parts are precision machined from solid 6061 aluminum billets. The AeroCarb has only two moving parts, with no float bowls or secondary jets to complicate things. A fine-adjustment metering needle provides clean burning, smooth running, outstanding response, and fuel economy. Spigot or flange mounts easily adapt to popular aircraft and auto conversion engines. Mounts for the standard "push-pull" cable assemblies are built in, and the AeroCarb can also accept throttles using pull-type actuation, such as the AeroConversions Throttle Quadrants. AeroCarbs have been successfully installed in everything from Continentals and Lycomings to Chevy and Suzuki aircraft engine conversions.
