Smallest Engines

Fri May 11, 2001 8:49 pm

I dunno if this is the right place for this but here goes:

My friends have been working on a small aircraft made of metal and moulded fibreglass, and powered by 2, believe it or not 24HP 4-stroke Motorcycle Engines, and wheels borrowed from my old Maruti-800 car! I seriously doubt it will ever fly with a load of 2 people!

It is a dream plane alright, but i was just wondering if i could find JET engines small enough to be fitted on top of the wings . Mebbe with a 100 kg thrust each?

Can i find such small engines?

Someone have probably built such small engines and maybe you can do it yourself but it might be hard to get it certified  Big grin.

Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!
