For 75 years, Ellen Island Camp in Northern Ontario, has been providing superb walleye, pike, and small mouth bass fishing for people who want to mix adventure with fishing rods. The 17-acre island, which is in a lake with nearly 500 miles of shoreline, is accessible to fishermen only by boat. The boat can accommodate up to 20 people at a time for the 45-minute ride to the island.
The current owner, Jeff Landriault, expanded his personal options with the acquisition of a 1970 Cessna Skyhawk on floats. Because of insurance and the type of equipment and provisions his clients show up with at the mainland dock, he restricts the aircraft to personal use…things like flying into other remote, pristine lakes for family fishing or half-hour trips to the nearest town for an expensive quart of milk. To enhance the versatility of his 172K, Jeff installed a Power Flow Tuned Exhaust System on the Pen Yan 180 hp engine. Jeff said: “The Power Flow exhaust has made a difference in takeoff and climb performance, and has improved our fuel economy. The addition was worth the investment.” Because the Power Flow System causes the engine to run cooler and more efficiently, it enhances engine life and reliability, which is critical in an isolated location like Lady Evelyn Lake.

When California-based Otto Aviation started taxi testing its Celera 500L six-person private craft in 2018, it generated a lot of attention towards the mysterious bullet-shaped plane. German aircraft engine manufactures RED Aircraft GmbH reveals how their RED A03 engine became a crucial element in how the futuristic aircraft achieves unrivaled performance.
Otto Aviation has recently unveiled its new bullet-shaped plane the Celera 500L, a six-passenger aircraft capable of flying at the speed of a jet with eight times lower fuel consumption. The aviation industry is currently abuzz with this launch, with many experts claiming that the Celera 500L has the potential to revolutionize private aviation. In addition to its’ many brilliant design concepts, the uniqueness of the Celera 500L can also be attributed to its RED A03 engine, a product from RED Aircraft GmbH known to deliver best-in-class efficiency.
Otto Aviation claims that the Celera 500L can cruise at more than 460 miles per hour, achieves a 4,500 nautical mile range, and has an operating cost of just $328 per hour. This aircraft will make it possible to connect all perceivable city pairings in the United States, owing to its fantastic range. According to the maker, the craft’s laminar flow design is the key factor behind its impressive coverage and fuel consumption. The Celera’s extremely low coefficient of drag combined with its lightweight composite structure enables it to operate on much less horsepower than equivalently sized jets or turboprops.
Another key attribute of Otto Aviation’s Celera 500L private aircraft is its liquid-cooled V12 twin six-cylinder German-built RED A03 engine. This rear-mounted engine is certified to operate using both biodiesels as well as Jet A1.
Mentioned below are some of the factors that influenced Otto Aviation to choose RED Aircraft GmbH’s RED A03 engine for the Celera 500L.
Otto Aviation CTO David Bogueremarked, "We evaluated several engine options for the Celera 500L. The RED engine outperformed each one with exceptional efficiency through higher altitudes. We’re delighted to partner with RED on this aircraft using their certified engine."
Sebastian Glück, Head of Business Development RED Aircraft GmbH said, "We are honoured and excited to be part of this new aircraft design.
The Celera 500L demonstrates the great potential of our game-changing RED A03 engine as well as our own engineering capabilities. The power plant combined with the aircraft’s unique design serves to dramatically reduce operating costs and provide performance with cruise speeds equivalent to similar-sized jet aircraft”
