    Sky-Tec develops, manufactures, markets, and supports more than 45,000 lightweight engine starters for Lycoming, Continental and Franklin piston engines.

     

    Sky-Tec High-Torque Inline Starter NL-series is FAA PMA certified and specially made for non-geared Lycoming engine-powered aircraft. While the NL is the newest starter from Sky-Tec, it has fast become the #1 seller in the world due to its light weight (just 9.4 lbs), high-torque, switchable between 12 and 24 volts, wound field motor and is made from superior components including rugged all-metal gears, 3X steel ball bearing races, and vibration proof solenoid. (Keep in mind that this starter will not fit newer C206 or any B60 aircraft. Those are covered by the 149-24PM and 149-24HT models, respectively.) You are protected by a recently enhanced 2 year warranty from Sky-Tec.

     

    Sky-Tec Features an Exclusive KPS® Kickback Protection System. Also available in Extended Cranking 24 Volt Super Duty versions /EC models (see table below). This starter is unmatched in duty cycle capabilities and durability on even the hardest starting 12V or 24V aircraft. Sky-Tec NL-series starters fit without modification or 337 paperwork. At only 9.4 lbs., the NL-series is the lightest Bendix-free inline available.
