Aero Cors-Air USA LLC is proud to introduce a new and more powerful version of the Cors-Air engine line, The Black Bull for 2018.
This engine was designed for those pilots who want even more power, shorter take-off runs and very high climb rates.
The new version of the Cors-Air Black Bull can be used for foot launch PPG, PPG Trikes, Delta Trikes, ultralight airplanes and UAV (DRONES)
This new powerplant is lighter than the older version and compared to other brands of engines in its class, it is sturdy, reliable and user friendly, just as the rest of the Cors-Air Motors engines.
With many tests on the bench and in the air, flown by well known PPG pilots and test pilots, in the harshest and most "unfriendly" environments,
the new version of the Cors-Air Black Bull 2018 passed all the tests with flying colors.
The very first Black Bull engines left the factory in Italy by the end of November 2015 and ever since, we did not hear from a single pilot who regretted buying this mighty powerplant!
After these years, it was a bold and logical step forward to imporve this powerful engine even further. This is how the new Black Bull 2018 version was born.
The new 2018 Black Bull is the most powerful engine in our "fleet" which consists of Cors-Air M19/Black Magic, Black Devil LIGHT and Black Devil LIGHT/SPORT.
The picture below shows the old version of the Black Bull engine:
Below is the new 2018 version of the Black Bull electric start model:
The cooling shroud shown above is optional
Below is a picture of the hand start model
Comparing the first two pictures above the first thing we notice is that the new 2018 Black Bull has a simplified exhaust system.
The tuned pipe is incorporated in the muffler and this reduces the weight by about 1,2 Kg (2,64 pounds)
In the same time, the tone of the engine is deeper, quieter, more pleasant and with no metallic sounds that were caused by the vibration of the exhaust ball joints which as we can see, are completely eliminated! This is a new and unprecedented feature!
Also, the flexible connection now has FOUR (4) interior layers which ensure an absolut airtight connection with a very long life.
There are three versions of the engine:
a) Pure electric start
b) Hand start (flash start)
c) Hybrid engine (electric start and hand start)
For the 2018 engines we have a new aftermarket charging system (see below)
No other company offers so many versions of its engines except us!
Another improvement is that, as an optional kit, the Black Bull 2018 can be retrofitted with a battery charging system for a Sealed Lead Acid Battery and a different one to charge a LIPO (Litium Polymer Phosphate) battery!
Another optional item is the cooling shroud that must be purchased separately and this will lower the cylinder head temperature (CHT) by some 100 degrees Fahrenheit!!!
The charging system consists of an additional coil mounted close to the magnetic wheel which generates the charging current that is rectified and the voltage is adapted to charge a Sealed Lead Acid Battery or a LIPO battery (the LIPO battery needs more charging volts and this is why we offer two separate charging systems)
The price of the optional charging system for a Sealed Lead Acid Battery or a LIPO is the same: $175.00 plus shipping (battery NOT included)

The classic electric start or hybrid Black Bull does not charge the battery in flight.

We recommend buying the Hybrid engine (with el. start and hand start) and using a 12 Volt Sealed Lead Acid battery
of 3,5 Ah capacity, one can get from 20- to 25 cold starts which is plenty for a flying session
NOTE: If five (5) or more engines are purchased in the same time, dealer's prices can be applied
