New Engines That They're Almost Ready to Show You
known for at least a couple years that Bombardier-Rotax has been
developing a new-generation aircraft engine, and we've hinted at
what it might be like.
All we can show you for now is an artist's conception
(right) of a News-Spy photo that purports to be a
cleverly-disguised test cell, somewhere in Holland.
It's getting closer to being unveiled. At least now, it's being
officially acknowledged. The new engines will be manufactured at
the Bombardier-Rotax gmbh & Co KG facility in Gunskirchen,
Austria and distributed in the United States by the newly created,
Bombardier Aircraft Engine Corporation.
The remaining secrets (we're so sworn to secrecy;
that's part of the angst of being journalists) will be seen
publicly at Oshkosh on July 29. Visit Booths 299, 305, and 306.
And read Aero-News, for the whole story, as soon as our
legal guys say we can tell you... It's gonna be good.
