Passion

Put yourself at the controls with the excitement of a new energy: a world of technology at your service begins at the end of the runway.

Sustainability

Reduced fuel consumption, less noise and lower costs. Bluer and more silent skies with a technology that is in tune with the environment.

Innovation

The future of aviation finally takes flight powered by a line of sophisticated engines: the P2M multi-fuel-electric hybrid propulsion system.

POWERFUL. FUNCTIONAL. MADE IN ITALY

P2M has developed a range of mulit-fuel and jet fuel-electric hybrid engines for general aviation and ultra-light aircraft and assembles them with electric motors, producing advanced hybrid propulsion systems. A new model of efficiency for the aviation market, born from the brainwave of a start-up with military grade precision and a long engineering tradition from the excellence of Made in Italy.

Objective: Efficiency

With the multi-fuel and jet fuel-electric hybrid engines created by P2M, the efficiency and environmental sustainability of aircraft engines are close at hand.

Lightweight and powerful

Too heavy? General Aviation has long neglected jet-fuel and diesel engines, but the model devised by P2M has the best weight / power ratio in it its class.

Reduced consumption

Travelling over long distances and saving fuel now becomes a reality with the engines of P2M, which reduce consumption up to 50%.

Project leader

At the head of the P2M project is Marco Marotta, a former Air Force and airline pilot.

Flying in safety

With the integrated electric motor there is an extra guarantee: extra power for takeoff and a “spare” engine in case of emergency.

A global market

The P2M mulit-fuel and  jet fuel-electric hybrid projects are aimed at a global market, from individuals to manufacturers, from new aircraft to replacement engines, to military drones, in Europe, Americas, Middle East and Asia.

DESIGN EXCELLENCE

To develop the general aviation multi-fuel and  jet fuel-electric hybrid engines, P2M started from an aluminum engine. Using an already popular model in the automotive market, with millions of hours, excellent performance and low emissions, the engine was further lightened and optimized with high tech materials for use in aerospace. It required a thorough redesign that did not neglect any particular details: for example, all lubrication systems have been redesigned to even allow upside down flight.

THE “MAGICIANS” OF THE ENGINES

For the development of our advanced engines, P2M collaborated with the greatest Italian experts in motor engineering and motor sport. Much of the research and innovation activities are carried out in partnership with some of the major Italian motor companies, particularly in the area of Modena and Parma, where there are sophisticated “engineering studios” in which the “magicians” of Motogp racing and Formula One operate. Here modifications and changes were made based on the needs of the aviation market.

TWO ENGINES, JUST ONE MIND

Next to the multi-fuel engine, P2M have integrated the most advanced electric motor produced by a Slovenian company to complete the hybrid system. Both engines are driven by a software application that continually evaluates the performance and – according to the requirements of the flight phase – determines the distribution of power.

The motors therefore work together, and are called on at any time to provide the required power following a curve of efficiency that adheres perfectly to the flight profile.

OBJECTIVE: CERTIFICATION

P2M has developed multi-fuel engines of 1600 cc and of 2100 cc to use in the standard and hybrid version.

The next target will be the EASA certification for both engines, which will open new perspectives for General Aviation aircraft.

ENGINES IN TESTING

The multi-fuel and the hybrid system are aimed at the lucrative engine replacement market and to builders who want to replace the standard engines.  The engines are also aimed at developers new models of manned and unmanned helicopters and aircraft.

Meanwhile P2M is experimenting the jet-fuel engine of 150 HP on a ULM biplane, and the hybrid version on a Speed Canard.

Global partnerships

The company is considering a partnership for research with investors from USA, Great Britain, Australia and Germany.

Exhibitions and contracts

The interest of producers is growing, and after some trade shows contracts have been signed for the new engine.

REDUCED CONSUMPTION

The jet fuel-electric hybrid format manages the engine in the best way through all phases of the flight, because the engine produces its maximum power only at takeoff, climbing and in event that this is needed, while in cruise consumption and performance are balanced with lower power and landing “pushes” little more than to the minimum. The lower consumption leads to substantial savings, depending on the type of fuel used.

GUARANTEED SAVINGS

Diesel fuel and Jet-A1 fuel that powers airplanes are much cheaper than aviation gasoline: to fill a medium-sized aircraft would save hundreds of Euros per flight. Moreover, the autonomy would grow up to double: with hybrid engine instead of just flying from Milan to Madrid you could go and return without refueling.

THE SAFETY FACTOR

The adoption of a hybrid integrated system would also increase the safety factor ,of great importance for aviation. If the combustion engine suffers a failure, you could continue navigating and reach an airport by activating the electric one. This advantage should not be underestimated given that greater autonomy allows you to travel over longer distances.
