DHC-2 Dehavilland RED Engine Installation
In partnership with Sealand Aviation and RED Engines of Germany, we were tasked with designing, manufacturing and installing the avionics in this first in the world project. Every aspect of the electrical system was redesigned and reworked. Our ability to manufacture the harnesses for install means that to complete the modification in future will be as easy as plug and play.
