SMA Maule

While Luc Pelon was discussing his SR305-E Brent Maule was on hand to talk about the upcoming Maule M9. Fitted with the SMA diesel engine, the M9 will cruise at 137mph burning about 9usg. The paperwork is with the FAA and the TC is expected 'real soon now'.

The M9 will be the first aircraft fitted with the SMA engine as standard and is expected to appeal to many markets where avgas is unavailable or hard to find. As you can see, the M9 sports a new cowling which is not expected to win any awards for beauty.
