Does anyone know any new information about the NASA/TCM engine?


I found an article at




where Teledyne Continental talks about future plans for their new engines. There is a paragraph near the end that follows:


There is a common misperception that TCM has shelved the NASA/GAP engine. That speculation is wrong. The issues are funding and timing, which affect not only TCM but our OEM customers and the industry in general. The results of the GAP engine program clearly indicate that the concept is viable and could be commercialized successfully. As with the Honda program, we expect to make a decision regarding the use of the GAP in the not-too-distant future.


the article is dated 11/21/2003
