    I am an 74 year old male and former PPL holder, that dream of better aircraft engines.
    Lower mass,less fuel and very low vibrations.
    No ,it is not a fuel cell but a side-valved gasoline two-stroke.

    Welcome to the board. There's lots of interest in new engines here--and lots of opinions!

    Thank You for being Welcomed.
    I will be pleased to hear where my reasoning can be wrong.
    Not very likely but ugly things happen

    Welcome Niels. What part of Denmark do you live in? I have friends in Store Heddinge. One (19 years old) wants to become a commercial pilot.

    I live in Klitmøller,close to Thisted Airport.
    My son lives close to Store Heddinge and flew up here in a twoseater VL-3 belonging partly to a friend
    Very fast.
    Cruises almost as fast as a Spitfire close to earth.
    I was allowed to fly it under supervision and it was nice and my son and friend flew home again.
    Will probably be my last fligth.
