About Project

Better choice and affordability of modern gas turbine engine for General Aviation.

Why ESPOSA?

The further development of general aviation (GA) and any forthcoming steps in this area are substantially limited by availability of modern certified propulsion units and reliable aircraft systems.Any kind of aircraft/rotorcraft configuration for future air taxi or regional transport will desire efficient and environmentally acceptable propulsion unit.

Validation and Flight Demonstration

The project specificity is the focus of the project outputs on new technologies and design solutions with a high readiness level for practical use. Specifically it concerns the TRL level of 5-6-(7) (Technology Readiness Level), when the new engine including its systems is already tested in an environment close to the actual operation.
