Abstract

This study shows the importance of re-engining a light aircraft operating with engines have old technologies consume much fuel and with fuel type harms the environment, which affecting the economic situation represented by specific fuel consumption (SFC) resulted in increasing the direct operating cost (DOC). In this paper, an analytical approach has been followed, the performance evaluation and the Weight and balance calculation have been calculated using Advanced Aircraft Analysis (AAA) and MATLAB based on the available data for the aircraft and engine. The selected engine was AUSTRO AE 300, a turbocharged four cylinders geared diesel piston engine equipped with a fuel injection system. This work gives a predictable result.
