Will Help Enginemaker Certify Two-Stroke Diesel
LoPresti Aviation, in an homage to their founder Roy LoPresti,
announced this week at AirVenture the winner of its first annual
prize for "Innovation in Aviation" -- DeltaHawk Engines.
For those not familiar with the LoPresti legacy, he was the

behind the Grumman Tiger, Cheetah, Cougar and the Mooney 201, 232,
252 and 301. Oh, and also NASA's Lunar Lander.

LoPresti has begun working
with DeltaHawk to bring their product to a wider market. In this
next year, the company says we will see the DeltaHawk two-stroke
diesel engine gain certification, "and we will work with them to
create STC's for the burgeoning diesel market."
"SpeedMerchants", LoPresti's performance enhancement company,
has a list of innovations that reads like an inventors dream. Their
designs have successfully improved the products of almost every
manufacturer in aviation, from LSA's to Jet transport.
The actual award was designed by the senior LoPresti before his
death in 2002. It is a unique sculpture designed as an art piece
and will travel amongst winners.
