Classic Aero-TV: Ralph Maloof Revs Up - Innovations For Homebuilt A/C Engines

From 2016 (YouTube Version): A VW Bug Engine Conversion Has Matured Into an Engine for the Airplane Homebuilder…

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, ANN News Editor, Tom Patton, visited with the folks at RevMaster and talked with Ralph Maloof, who is an aeronautical engineer and inventor.

The first thing we find out in this interview is that the RevMaster engine is based on the Volkswagen Bug engine, but it is not simply a Volkswagen engine with slight modifications to make it fit in an airplane. Maloof says it has been modified to the point that it is really designed for aircraft use, not for automobile use.

Maloof goes on to describe the changes that have been made to the engine and how it has become a true airplane engine. He says the primary advantages of this engine are, low weight and low-cost for the amount of performance that you get.

Another fascinating aspect of this company is their ability to help the airplane builders themselves customize an engine to get more horsepower, a slower turning propeller, and better aircraft performance. They do this with what Maloof calls a ‘rubber engine,’ and you’re going to have to watch the video to find out exactly what that means.

This video just goes to show how innovative recreational aviation can be.
