TRACE Beaver First Flight

MIDLAND, Texas (May 14, 2012) -TRACE Engines L.P is excited to announce the successful, first flight of a de Havilland Beaver (freight and passenger) aircraft powered by a TRACE engine this weekend.  The milestone marks over a year of effort in designing the conversion kit, procuring the kit components, and assembling the kit to the aircraft.  The TRACE installation allows for a dramatic performance increase with the TRACE engine producing 600 horsepower replacing the original Pratt & Whitney Radial engine which produced 450 horsepower.  The increase in performance is extremely beneficial to the Beaver, which is typically categorized as a “bush” plane, taking off from small fields, lakes, or rivers (if equipped with floats).
