JPX (France)

JPX engines are built by S.A.R.L. JPX of Vibraye, France. This firm began in 1970 as Ateliers JPX and took the current name in about 1991. Their four-stroke cycle engines were derived from VW auto engines. Information on their engine activities can be found on the JPX Website. Their engines are in two classes, two-stroke cycle engines for ultralights (both early 1980s PUL engines and current D engines), and four-stroke cycle engines for light aircraft. The D320 and D330 two-stroke cycle engines were listed (KP) as being available in the US until about 2005.
