Revmaster Aviation is known worldwide as the manufacturer of precision-built sport aircraft engines. The Revmaster R-2100 engine has proven to be an extremely reliable and most economical propulsion system through thousands of accumulated hours powering hundreds of various sport aircraft in all parts of the world.


Revmaster was established in 1959 for the purpose of producing remanufactured Volkswagen engines for the automotive market. Along with the standard engine line, an array of larger displacement engines and components was developed. These products were intended for the embryonic VW high-performance market; some of these products are still being manufactured by Revmaster at this time. Other products using Revmaster engines were manufactured, such as off-road racing chassis, completed race cars, hovercraft, all-terrain vehicles and more.

In 1968 Revmaster began a design and developmental program to manufacture an all-new light aircraft powerplant. Revmaster Aviation was formed as a subsidiary headquartered at the Chino Airport in Chino, California. The company remained in Chino through the 1970’s and eventually relocated to newer facilities at the Hesperia Airport in Hesperia, California.
