What You Should Know About the MWFly Engines from Italy


Guido Fantini offers a detailed look at the MWFly four-cylinder aero engines being shown at Sun ‘n Fun 2024. Available in two displacements (2.3 and 2.6 liters) and with or without a prop-speed reduction unit (PSRU). This two-valve-per-cylinder isn’t based on any automotive design, but has been purpose built for aircraft in Northern Italy. It also features liquid cooling and redundant ECUs for the fuel injection and ignition. The gearbox, when fitted, has its own oil supply and can be fitted with an electronic valve to permit the use of a hydraulic constant-speed prop. The non-turbo version weighs less than 200 pounds with a gear reduction drive.
