On May 22, 2015, DeltaHawk Engines, Inc. secured commercial funding from an investor group lead by the Ruud Family of Racine, WI. Find out more about this exciting new chapter in DeltaHawk’s history soon.
DeltaHawk Engines, Inc. was formed in 1996 to answer the general aviation industry’s call for a “clean sheet” compression-ignition engine. By 1997, DeltaHawk developed a prototype engine running on a static Velocity airframe. At the time, DeltaHawk had established the mission:
To design, produce, distribute and support lightweight turbo-diesel engines for a variety of aviation and non-aviation uses
That mission holds true today as DeltaHawk continues to anticipate and exceed the needs of general aviation. In 2015, DeltaHawk plans to test and certify their multi-fuel (Diesel or Jet-A) 160-200 horsepower engine family for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards.
The family of engines will become the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient and reliable multi-fuel engines on the market. General aviation pilots and mechanics will have an exceptional solution to comply with United States EPA fuel standards by January 2017.
Aviation applications range from small two-seat Light Sport Aircraft at the lower end of the power range, to 6-seat single engine and 12-seat twin engine fixed wing aircraft and 4-seat helicopters at the high end.
The DeltaHawk family of heavy-fuel piston engines combines long-established diesel engine principles with modern materials and design. This forward thinking produces a high power-to-weight ratio product with the added benefit of reduced fuel consumption as compared to equivalent gasoline engines. Because of their simple, durable, and compact design
DeltaHawk engines have found use in these applications:
As DeltaHawk explores the future, the company is committed to building the finest heavy-fuel diesel engines available.
