After extensive research and rigorous testing, Aerovel proudly announces the Flexrotor now is equipped with a state-of-the-art Heavy Fuel Engine (HFE) with proprietary fuel mixture control. Integrating the HFE enhances the Flexrotor’s unique VTOL capabilities, improving efficiency, operational range, and maritime market compatibility. The First Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) units featuring the HFE will be deployed to the US Navy’s 5th Fleet and Task Force 59, demonstrating its impressive capabilities and reliability in an operational environment.
The development of this proprietary HFE is credited to the dedicated efforts of Dr. Tad McGeer, Chief Engineer Kevin Beloy, P.E., and the entire Aerovel staff. Their combined expertise and commitment to excellence have been instrumental in integrating this pioneering technology into real world operations.
