COMP AIR 8 Turbine

Walter M601D Turboprop Powerplant

Built in the Czech Republic, the 657 eshp Walter M601D powerplant has earned an enviable reputation for outstanding reliability and durability among Let 410 (19-seat commuter) operators in harsh Siberian, African, South American, and Eastern European regions. As the commercial operators upgrade to the newer Walter M601 E-11 series, their used M601D powerplants have recently become available for use in sport and recreational airplanes. Aerocomp Inc. is pleased to be able to offer these powerplants to customers looking for phenomenal performance and maximum utility, at prices that are competitive with high performance reciprocating engines.

Complete "Firewall-Forward" Engine Packages are available. Refer to Walter M601D Info Sheet for additional details.
