New and Used Aircraft Engines for Sale. The engine is the heart of the aircraft and is what makes it go.
Do you want an engine for your plane? If this is the case this page is an excellent place to purchase out one. Many varieties and sizes to choose from and if this isn't enough then there are many links to alternative places to continue your search. Examples of engines, which will be found here, are the Subaru, Liquid Cooled, Diesel, Rotax, Rolls Royce and more.
An engine is what powers the craft. Most of these are light-weight combustion types.
Aircraft engines should be reliable. You don't want to lose power when up in the air. In a car this would be just an inconvenience but in the air it could mean loss of life. The engine needs to be strong enough to carry itself plus the load of the aircraft and its entire cargo with ease. In addition it needs to be fuel-efficient.

The corporations making these engines bring in close to 40 billion a year. In 1903 the Wright Brothers used the first engine that actually flew. This first flight lasted only 12 seconds but was the beginning of great things. Now folks are building or repairing their own aircraft and need something they can depend on so this is a great place to start.
Adventures of a Border Agent
A Tall Tale I love model airplanes and like to build my own. This photo shows an engine of a model plane. The engines for sale on this page are for normal sized aircraft but this story is of the smaller version that so many of us like to fly too.
I used to work on the border patrol and one of the things we had to watch for were model airplanes being flown over the border smuggling drugs and other things. We were working on an intercept system that would take over the tiny aircraft and bring it to the ground right at our feet. There were many kinks that had to be worked out so until then whenever we spotted a small aircraft flying over the border we had to be in hot pursuit and try to find where it landed. Most of the time the control holder was on the Mexico side of the border and we could not chase them there. To make things more difficult these planes were usually used in more remote areas where the patrol was really spread thin. There needed to be a system set up where any small aircraft could be spotted on radar and a drone sent out to intercept it and bring it to the ground.
Exactly what we were doing has to be kept top secret so just overall details will be told in this story. One day while testing the equipment we were trying to bring down a small model aircraft. The system worked by partly jamming the engine and taking control of it, The model was up in the air and we were experimenting when suddenly a loud noise caught our attention. A high wing aircraft was approaching us from the west and heading right for us. It was losing speed and acting like it wanted to land in the field where we were working.
Confused, we dropped what we were doing and ran for cover. The aircraft, which was probably a small Cessna abruptly gained lift and headed back up and away from us. Scratching our heads we wondered what had just happened.
Then our engineer made a suggestion. Our equipment must have grabbed onto the larger target instead of the tiny one and as we tried to make the small model craft come down it was actually bringing down the bigger plane. That seems to be the only explanation we could find. Now we needed to be really careful. Our equipment could be extremely dangerous and we had to find a way to fine tune our apparatus to home in on just tiny targets that was pre-approved and ignore any larger ones.
Back to the drawing board and from now on we test very cautiously away from flight paths and watch for private planes too. I can't tell how this all came out as it is top secret but just say that we continue to make progress.
New and used aircraft engines to go with that airplane you are fixing up or building.
The one shown in this photo is a 1922 Le Rhone 9C engine and is sitting in a museum in Japan. This one was used in a Nieport 24C1 airplane that was operated in World War 1 by the French. It was a biplane and also became a trainer for pilots. The Wars were a big boost to technology and many of our advancements came from the urgency to defend from enemies.
When choosing an airplane engine the thought upper most is safety. Unlike a car motor that would be only be an inconvenience if there was engine trouble, in a plane the same type of trouble could mean loss of life.
As they become available I will try to have Subaru and liquid cooled ones available here in this section. Diesel and Rotax types too.
The Antonov Biplane Engine shown in this photo above was made around 1946. It was a big biplane that could carry people and supplies. You might still see one used in crop dusting as they are really slow and noisy and canít be utilized for other purposes now days. However you might still see one at an air show.
Another use for these is for towing gliders. Gliders need something with a lot of power that can take them up slowly before releasing the tow. My sister got into gliders for awhile. She lost her medical ability to hold a license due to seizures suffered after a bike accident. You can pilot a glider without a standard pilots license so this makes a good choice for those who canít get their medical approved.
Rolls Royce is another great producer and look for them on this page too.
The Hispano Suiza 150 V8 engine shown in the photo above was made in the year 1914. The engine had to be liquid cooled like your standard car so had to have a radiator of some type. This was the most used airplane motor in World War 1 and mainly operated by the freedom loving people of the United States, Britain, Italy and others.
The wooden propeller isnít utilized much today except mainly in experimental aircraft. My pilot sister loves airplanes so my husband who is a pilot himself and I got her a wooden propeller for Christmas. We had to find a long box and mailed it to her since we lived across the country from her.

Dear Aircraft Engine Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
