During the last quarter of 2022 we conducted a major audit of our technical program. The current state of the program and the tasks remaining to be completed were assessed in fine detail and the result of that assessment was a significantly revamped project plan for the remainder of the development program for the TA200TP.

It is evident that our development program is taking longer than we anticipated. However, our engineering team continues to resolve the multitude of design challenges that constantly arise, and they make incredible progress, particularly when considering the limited resources that we have available to us. Notwithstanding the impact of factors which are outside our control, I am extremely proud of the whole team at TurbAero and their continued commitment and dedication to delivering a reliable, safe, and fuel-efficient turboprop engine to the experimental and general aviation markets.

Our engineering team continues to work diligently, and we have seen tangible progress in many areas of the program, to the extent that several elements of the engine design have been frozen, and parts have been prototyped. We are now in the process of analyzing what we hope to be the final iteration of our recuperator and I encourage you to read the Design and Technical Program Update in this newsletter for more details on this component.

In a couple of weeks’ time, TurbAero will be displaying at SUN 'n FUN air show. You can find out more details about our attendance at the air show here.

In relation to our RV-7T project, we are announcing that following SUN 'n FUN, we will be transitioning the build and modification of an RV-14 to replace our RV-7. As such we will be selling the RV-7. Please see this update in our news feed for more details.

I’d like to thank all of you for your continued interest and support for TurbAero and I hope to meet up with as many of you as possible in our booth at SUN 'n FUN.

As always, safe flying!
Dave Limmer,
Founder and CEO, TurbAero
