Rover Mk10501 Air Starter APU – Serviceable Condition
A fantastic opportunity to acquire a genuine piece of aviation history. I have for sale these Rover Mk10501 APU’s as used in the famous NIMROD MR2 reconnaissance aircraft.
See one of the engines running on the You Tube link below.
These engines produced the compressed air to start the Rolls Royce Spey engines and are absolutely ideal as a ground running hobby engine.
I have a full inventory of brand new spares avaiable for these engines!

Compressor RPM 64,000
Power Turbine RPM 47,000
Compressor – Centrifugal Impeller Combustion Chamber
Reverse Flow Annular with Six Sprayer type Burners
Compressor Turbine – Radial Inflow Impeller Power Turbine
Axial Flow Layout – Twin Shaft, Over Hung Gas Generator with Compressor Air Starter
Electric Motor starter
High Energy Ignitor
Fuel System – Piston Fuel Pump with Centrifugal Governors
RR Gem Engine
We probably have the largest privately owned collection of Rolls Royce Gem engines available anywhere. These engines powered the famous Lynx helicopters. We can provide engines “as removed” from service right up to a fully working turnkey solution. All engines can be seen running on our custom built test frame.
We can also custom build Gem engine stands, fuel tanks, starters and control panels and have a full range of instruments available.
Prices range from £5000 to £25,000.
The main advantages of these engines are:
- Very much self-contained with on-board oil tank
- Especially small footprint with terrific power to weight ratio (1000SHP)
- EPU – Electronic protection unit which shuts or slows the engine down in the event of problems
- Complete with free power turbine reduction gearbox (100% throttle = 6000RPM)
- Starter motor included
- Just add fuel and a control box!
- Power Output 900-1200 BHP (Depending on the Version)
- RPM: Nh= 43,400rpm Nl=37,600 rpm Npt= 27,738rpm
- LP Compressor 4 Stage Axial with Bleed Valve
- HP Compressor Centrifugal Impeller
- Air Mass Flow 7.5 Lbs/Sec
- Overall Pressure Ratio 12:1
- Combustion Chamber Reverse Flow Annular with 17 Vaporising Burners

Air Starter – Stad 250 Gas Turbine Jet Engine
A jet engine in it’s own right this is the popular Stad 250 engine. It was designed with an oversize compressor, surplus air was bled off and used to drive the air starter motor on many types of aircraft. Please note I have a number of these units for sale, consequently the pictures shown are probably not the actual engine for sale but they are all very similar.
Rolls Royce MK106 Pegasus Turbofan Engine
This is a fantastic example of a Rolls Royce Pegasus 106 Turbofan Engine which was produced for the Sea Harrier FA2.
The engine comes complete with full log cards and maintenance records.
You are welcome to visit and inspect the file records.
I also have Pegasus 105’s available.
Rolls Royce – BMW T312 APU
Rolls Royce / BMW T312 Starter Motor
Plessey Solent APU
Plessey Solent Gas Turbine Jet Engine in serviceable condition. These engines were designed in the 1960’s and were fitted as part of the starting system in the Phantom F4 aircraft Spey engine. There is quite a lot of information on the internet on removing the free power turbine and converting these units to provide thrust power.
This particular unit has it’s original records and is extremely rare being with its 731 “Serviceable Condition” paperwork.
Rolls Royce Spey 250
This is the military version of the Spey series and was used in the now decommissioned Nimrod MR2 aircraft. These engines are in fantastic condition, some with only a few hundred hours use. They sit in a phenomenally well engineered transport frame which makes moving them quite easy. The wheels of the frame retract allowing the frame to sit on rubber mounted skids. Each engine also comes with a MVP bag.
We have just taken delivery of what again can be described as probably the largest private collection of Microturbo Saphir engines available. These engines were used as the air producer to start the main engines in both the Jaguar and Hawk aircrafts.
After months of painstaking, head-scratching, chin-rubbing development work we have managed to convert the air producer into a fantastic little thrust producing engine. I’m sure this is the first time this conversion has been done. These engines can be supplied with a variety of options ranging from “as removed” from service (see note below) to fully wired, piped, plumbed and running with a control box.
Note: In it’s basic form the engine is supplied without any of the ancillary systems such as oil and fuel pump, ignition exciter, engine frame or instruments. Everything has to be added to run the engine which is why there is such a price variance.
Prices range from £3,000 – £6,000
