VZ Power Turbo

Postby jboyd » Fri Apr 26, 2019 12:15 pm

I've reviewed the Edge Performance enhancements but curious if anyone has investigated VZ Power? Website claims DULV certification?

Never heard about it but here it is from one of their faq items ...

The DULV is a German certification body that deals with certification of ultralights of any kind, and related equipement. Its certification means that the quality and specifications of the product is consistent to published standards, and that quality assurance over the production process is guaranteed.
This certification is needed in order to legally sell and then register any aircraft or gyrocopter with our engine, as factory new. All ULM manufacturers can benefit from this certification, and are now able to equip their flying machines with our engine. This certification pertains to the ultralight context and should not be confused with an FAA or EASA one, which targets the general aviation industry.

Thanks Warmi, I had read the same thing but was hoping someone with far more experience than me in evaluating turbo options might have more information. I can't find anything where DULV certification has really impacted/interested the European manufacturers- only that it exists and VZ Power has obtained it.
