“Technologies maturation and development for integration of a Turboprop Aircraft Engine system”

Achieved thanks to co-financing

Of the POR FESR Piedmont 2014-2020

ASSE I – Action I.1b.1

With the project proposal, Avio Aero intends to develop innovative technologies, know-how and skills for advanced engine architectures. The total investment for Avio Aero is around 38M€ in 4 years of activities.

Taking in consideration the next generation Small Turboprop architecture, the goal of the project is to make a step change in engine performance reducing economic and environmental impacts.

The main guidelines of the project are:

  • Engine system integration with part count reduction using Additive Manufacturing technology
  • Advance aero and thermal design of Power Turbine
  • Ultra-compact combustor
  • Control System development
  • GBX in Additive Manufacturing with the achievement of the first engine certification.

All these goals have as aim:

  • The reduction of fuel consumption and operating costs of the propulsion system
  • The improvement of reliability and of safety for passengers.
