An aircraft piston engine, also commonly referred to as a reciprocating engine, is an internal combustion engine that uses one or more reciprocating pistons to convert pressure into a rotational motion. The aircraft piston engine operates on the same principles as the engines found in most automobiles. Fuel Aircraft reciprocating (piston) engines are typically designed to run on aviation gasoline (Avgas) although engine versions running on automotive gasoline (Mogas) or both are also offered in the market.
