ULPower Shows Its New Engines
ULPower, a company based in Geluveld, Belgium, showed off its new six-cylinder powerplants at Aero Friedrichshafen last week. UL is becoming more known in the kit airplane and experimental markets for its low-power four-cylinder engines. As Patrick Denorme explains in this AVweb video, it's now taking a run at the higher-power six-cylinder market.
UL showed AVweb the base engine, which will be available in four horsepower ranges from 145 HP to 200 HP. (The smaller power variants are 3.9 liter displacement, while the larger engines are 5.2 liters.) Although it has no plans to certify these engines right away, Denorme told AVweb it may do that eventually. All of the new engines have electronic engine control units and electronic port fuel injection. Denorme said some of the models are shipping and the company sold four at the show.
