The TurbAero journey started in 2008 when founder, Dave Limmer wanted to install a 100hp turbine engine in his own Lightning Bug experimental aircraft. Following a global search, he realised that there were no commercially available options, so he set about designing and building his own.

In 2015, he successfully ran his 100hp proof of concept engine. Check out the video of that engine below.

Having recognised the opportunity to introduce turbine engines into the light aircraft market, in 2016 Dave established TurbAero in conjunction with his brother Andrew, to pursue his dream of delivering a family of clean-sheet design, fully-optimized, fuel-efficient turbine engines to the light aircraft market.
