A03-20x Series High Altitude

The RED A03-200 series is a derivative of the proven RED A03-003 engine model, developed for very high-altitude operation. This variant can be combined with the 500 and 550 hp power versions. The 200-Series is equiped with the NORMAL category gearbox as the complexity of the aerobatic oil distribution is rather uncommon in high altitudes. …

A03-102 Series Aerobatic

The 100 series engine model is designed for advanced trainer and aerobatic aircrafts. The engine is approved for high positive-& negative g-load factors, high angular rotation velocities and inverted flight. This gearbox variant can be combined with the 500 and 550 hp power versions as well as high altitude mission layouts. A seperate oil reservoire …

A03-00X Series Normal cat

The A03 with the standard gearbox for NORMAL category aircraft, commuters and agricultural aircraft. The core design feature is regular operation, non-inverted, regular g-load considerations. This gearbox variant can be combined with the 500 and 550 hp power versions as well as high altitude mission layouts. As the gearbox is integrating the oil management, this …

Cowling

All the other parts are about strength and dimensions. The cowling is different. Lightweight but strong. Aerodynamic but fitting. Airframe design integration, still doing it’s job. Providing system air flow as intended. Please contact us to talk about your project and the solution you are looking for. We are very happy to offer our experience.

Air intake

Just like the other parts of the Firewall Forward kit design process, also the air guiding tunnel is a task of it’s own. The sufficient amout of air streaming into the system corresponds to the volume of air streaming out. Tractor and pusher airframe types have different requirements here and again, parasitic drag effects need …

Cooling

Installations from the central air intake channel to the cooling for the water and air system. The expansion tanks need some attention and the fuel lines from and to the tanks require consideration and the sufficient dimensions. We are offering 3D-CAD design service in a very close cooperation between the design specialists on both sides …

Engine Mount

The framework to attatch the engine to the airframe is a complex part, holding the engine even in a high g-load condition and isolating the airframe against vibration. We are offering 3D-CAD design service as well as production facilities to supply the engine mount as a checked product within our QC procedures. As the engine …
