Raven Rotors Suzuki Metro Geo aircraft engine conversions.

Raven ReDrives Inc.
Raven Re Drives has been providing the ultralight and light plane industry, 4 stroke engine alternatives for a number of years now. They first entered the market with a "how to manual" on converting the Geo Metro/Suzuki engine for aircraft application.  The manual takes you from what you need to purchase at the wrecking yard, the computer wiring, starter, alternator, how to lighten the engine on  through to installation of the reduction drive.

In addition to this Raven ReDrives also supplies reduction drive kits and engine packages, tailored around the Geo/Suzuki line of auto engines. These 4 stroke liquid cooled, overhead camshaft engines have a proven track record of reliability in aircraft use. One of the reasons is that the engine is designed to run at 3950 rpm @ 75 mph in the car - which is the same rpm used in aircraft application.
