PSR T01 KS engine, service data terminal, control unit, fuel board, retraction system and battery.

Draline is proud to announce that after extensive research and testing, the PSR T01 KS Kerosene Start (KS) design is approved by EASA.

This is the successor of the Gas Start (GS) system which was certified in 2014. The system can now be delivered as a fully certified KS system, with Form 1. This system does not require a gas bottle for starting the engine, which results in weight reduction and less chance for 'human error'. Also, the KS has shown an improved starting performance in comparison to the GS version. The KS system uses the main fuel tank for starting, and further operation as well. The engine will also be delivered with the new certified software update.

March 2016

We would like to give you an update of our PSR T01 KS Kerosene Start certification program. The test program is completed, tests are all done, currently we are finalising the certification documents.

Added to the Kerosene Start certification program we have incorporated a lot of extra features and small design changes to further improve the system.

Some of the added or changed features are November 2015



We have finished the new Draline engine test bench. All the test equipment is calibrated, the data is realtime and realtime stored. The user interface is fully updated and integrated with all the measurement equipment. Also the test setup enables us to perform vibration surveys.


The 400N engine build by AMT and Draline has been tested on a DuoDiscus-J for half a year. This engine has been proven to be most suitable for two seater and open class gliders. For more information contact email tech.info@psr-jet-system.com.
