We're receiving many inquiries about whether we have a certificated engine, or plans to develop one. The below is a status update on where we are at with this project. Keep your eye on this page as we'll post more details about this project as they become available.
TurbAero certification plans
We have recently commenced the certification program for the 200hp Talon-C engine. Indications are that the full process will take 2-3 years to complete. We estimate that Q4 2023 is likely to be the earliest that certificated engines will be available for delivery to customers.
Throughout the certification process, we intend to work in conjunction with the certificated aircraft manufacturers to integrate the Talon-C into their new airframes. We will also be supporting external parties who wish to develop Supplementary Type Certificates to facilitate the integration of the Talon-C into existing airframes. This will allow the engine to be installed on the many Cirrus SR20, Mooney, C172, PA28 etc aircraft that are currently flying.
We will keep our community updated on the progress of our certification program. The best way to stay up to date with this project is to subscribe to our newsletters using the button below.
We have recently launched the TurbAero forum where we have sections for discussion around certification of the engine and for discussion about specific aircraft types. Please check out the forum using the link above, ask any questions you might have (we have a target response time of 24 hours on weekdays and 48 on weekends) and be sure to introduce yourself in the relevant section!
