Microturbo Saphir – Another first for Jet Engine Trader!

June 6, 2017 1:35 pm

We have just taken delivery of what again can be described as probably the largest private collection of Microturbo Saphir engines available.  These engines were used as the air producer to start the main engines in both the Jaguar and Hawk aircrafts.

After months of painstaking, head-scratching, chin-rubbing development work we have managed to convert the air producer into a fantastic little thrust producing engine.   I’m sure this is the first time this conversion has been done.  These engines can be supplied with a variety of options ranging from “as removed” from service to fully wired, piped, plumbed and running with a control box.

Give Harry a call on 07768 004488 to discuss your requirements.

Another delivery of Rolls Royce Gem engines

June 6, 2017 1:29 pm


We probably have the largest privately owned collection of Rolls Royce Gem engines available anywhere.  These engines powered the famous Lynx helicopters.  The 1000+ SHP engine is extremely compact and has the additional benefit of a built-in free power turbine reduction gearbox which delivers 100% throttle @ 6000RPM.

We have developed a basic engine frame and a comprehensive control box system with a range of optional instruments so we can supply anything from a basic engine to a complete turnkey running engine ready to drop into your next project.

Jet Engine Trader goes “Arty”….

October 21, 2013 8:55 am

We have had countless requests over the years to turn components from some of the engines we break into pieces of furniture and corporate displays.

So, to provide a more comprehensive service we have decided to expand this part of the business and we now offer a complete range of beautiful hand crafted items in our product portfolio.

We are also happy to take commissions and custom build particular items.  Please feel free to call and discuss what you have in mind, no matter how big or small your idea.
