LoPresti Gives 'Innovation In Aviation' Award To DeltaHawk

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 prolific and innovative aircraft designer was the creative force behind the Grumman Tiger, Cheetah, Cougar and the Mooney 201, 232, 252 and 301. Oh, and also NASA's Lunar Lander.

"This small company has worked tirelessly for 12 years to bring a great design to market," LoPresti said. "The persistence and creativity of this company is something of which Roy would have approved."

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.
