The new Mazda RX8 sports car has a Wankel-type rotary engine that is supposed to be much more fuel efficent and environment-friendly than the earlier (RX7) model. It seems to me that a rotary engine would be a 'natural' for an aircraft power plant - fewer moving parts and less vibration. Has this ever been done? Would it work? (I don't mean the old style piston rotary aircraft engine)
