AMT Lynx

The lynx is a direct "spin-off" of the successful Nike engine. The engine is constructed around a single, fully in house CNC machined, radial compressor wheel and an axial flow turbine stage. The Lynx engine owns most of its excellent performance and power/weight ratio because of its revolutionary design diffuser stage similar to the Nike engine.

Starting system.

The Lynx engine is manufactured with an dual internal igniter system which allows a relaiable fully automatic start.

Starting method : Direct kerosene starting gasturbine.


A other feature used within the Lynx engine are the 2 internal EGT sensors, these 2 induvidual monitored EGT sensors (both a real Tt5) have both a small diameter of 1.5 mm, because of this small diameter there is a fast EGT response time possible. The result of this fast EGT response time is a short start up time of less than 45 seconds.
