Liberty XL2 to get diesel power

Not content with providing what they call the world's most economical, IFR-approved, two-seat trainer, the team at Liberty Aircraft has set off on a journey that should enable them to bring a Wilksch-engined Jet A1 fuelled aircraft to market. The aeroplane was clearly labelled as a proof of concept aircraft, but Liberty personnel told FLYER that the Wilksch engine would be FAA-certified within four to six months, with certification of the airframe/engine combination following six to ten months after that. This timescale suggests either significant optimism or a project that is already quite advanced. Watch this space for updates.
