Aircraft engine invention prepares to take flight
Engineered Propulsion Systems Inc. of New Richmond is on the verge of something big.
For more than six years, engineers Steven Weinzierl and Michael Fuchs have been convinced that they'd come up with the perfect idea for an innovative, low-cost diesel engine for general aviation aircraft.

This week, the two inventors celebrated achieving that major goal.
