|Manufacturer ADC Aircraft|
The ADC Airdisco is a British V-8 aero engine that first ran in 1925.
Design and development
The 'Airdisco' was developed from the French Renault 70 hp aero engine by Frank Halford of the Aircraft Disposal Company, the main difference being the use of aluminium cylinder heads. Halford later used one bank of cylinders to create the Cirrus engine.
A de Havilland DH.51 owned and operated by the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden, Bedfordshire remains airworthy and is powered by an original ADC Airdisco engine.
