Lycoming: Leaders in Piston Engine Manufacturing


lycoming

Demorest Manufacturing Company was founded over 80 years ago in 1845 and started out by manufacturing sewing machines and selling paper patterns for dress making. The name of the company was later changed in 1907 to Lycoming Foundry and Machine Company, after it was sold to Gerrit S. Scofield and Frank M. Scofield. Gerrit and Frank went on to construct a factory in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, also known as Lycoming County, which is how the company acquired its name. They changed their focus to the automobile industry, primarily in engine manufacturing. In the 1930s they then shifted gears to high power aircraft engines. Fast forward to today, they are a huge manufacturer and distributor of powerful engines in the aviation industry, after becoming a part of Honeywell Aerospace in 1999. Lycoming has manufactured over 300,000 piston engines since their inception.

Lycoming Manufacturer has manufactured many products over the years. Some of the current engines that are in their product line include:

  • 235 Series
  • 320 Series
  • 360 Series
  • 390 Series
  • 540 Series
  • 580 Series

They build their products to be reliable and customizable.  Not only does Lycoming Manufacturer provide products, but they also provide services. Some of these services include engine dynamometer power checks, power runs and calibration checks. This also includes test cell services, flight stand tests, altitude test and other engineering service. Price ranges of these services range from $192 to $471 per hour, depending on the service.
