Our passion for performance and the advance of engine design in aviation has prompted ACE-Performance to bring many new solutions and technology to aviation. Traditional manufactures of aircraft engines have been hampered by certification and liability exposure. This is a real and destructive reality in our business that continues to stifle innovation. Can you think of one product you have bought in the past 12 months that has not been either totally redesigned in the pat 20 years? ;except the brand new Lycoming or Continental engine you might have bought?
