01. ABOUT RPE AUSTRIA

For more than 20 years we have been working with our team on historic aircrafts and engines in our factory in Micheldorf / Carinthia / Austria.

It all started as a “hobby” 1999 with the restauration of Rolls-Royce Meteor tank-engines. Since then, we have constantly been working on historic engines. In 2003 we decided to “rebuild” a Messerschmitt Bf109-G6 including the restauration of the original engine – DB605.

After finishing this project together with Hangar 10 in Usedom / Germany in 2016 our company itself focused on the restauration of historic engines. Since then, we have been working on a wide range of historic engines.

Many of the engines we were working on are built in “flying aircrafts” like Bf-109, FW 190, Bücker 131, Bücker 133, Fieseler Storch and Messerschmitt Bf-108.

In 2019 our company established our own engine test bench. With this test-bench a wide range of test-programs (stationary or dynamic engine testing) can be run directly in-house.

With this establishment the main engine parameters such as torque and engine speed, exhaust-gas temperatures, intake air temperature, intake manifold pressure, oil and water temperature, oil-pressure and fuel consumption, torque and engine speed can be measured and recorded.

If requested, type-approval-authority can join these test-runs and can share the test -protocols for approval.

Beside that our company is also supporting several warbird aircraft projects with know-how and project management, parts and also with on-side support during testing.

02. ENGINE-REBUILDING AND OVERHAULING

Our main focus is the restauration / overhauling and complete rebuild of historical aircraft piston engines and their components. Since 1999 we were working on different engines for different aircrafts such as:

All these engines were delivered to our customers in fully airworthy condition.

We are doing every step from mechanical work (disassembling, cleaning, status of the engine and parts, assembling..), machining (production of new parts and overhauling) to final set-up (injection with injection-pump test-bech, ignition set-up, etc.) on the engines.

03. TEST-BENCH

In 2019 we established our own in-house testbench. We can run aircraft piston engines in stationary and dynamic conditions. We can cover a wide range of engines – from a 2-liter Zündapp up to a 36-liter DB605.

The setup for the testbed (cooling-system, adjustment of propeller for testbench use, installation of measurement devices) is done in house.

We can measure a wide range of engine parameters such exhaust-gas temperatures, intake air temperature, intake manifold pressure, oil and water temperature, oil-pressure, fuel consumption and temperature, pitch-cpntrol, oil consumption, torque and engine speed and ambient- pressure and temperature  with a 10Hz recorder. We also “film” the test-runs with 4 cameras from different positions.

During the testrun, the testbed controller can adjust speed and load according to the test program. In parallel all data from the measurement devices are transferred to the control-stand – so we can check in real time what is happening.

This gives us the opportunity to check the engine behavior before the engine is built in the aircraft. Based on these results, we can make adjustments on the engine and document a detailed status.

Besides engines, that we build in-house, its also possible to run “external” engine on our testbed. Depending on the project-boundaries, we can do the test-bed and engine set-up and support the runs-itself. The data-analysis and eventual adjustments on the engines, can be done by the customer.
