Polen Company


The Polen Company is committed to performance through efficiency.

Heritage of Efficiency
Four decades ago Dennis Polen developed the Polen Special experimental aircraft. Powered by a small 180hp engine, the Special was capable of a remarkable 325mph. Efficiency was the essence of the design and the performance. To this day the Polen Special remains the world’s fastest four cylinder vehicle. This is our heritage.

Global Transportation Dilemma
Today the global economy faces crisis. The cost—financially, environmentally and politically—of dependence upon fossil fuels is no longer sustainable. For the transportation industry, finding performance through efficiency has never been more vital. The Polen Company welcomes the challenge.

Strategic R & D
Not attached to a single solution, The Polen Company is committed to identifying and nurturing a wide range of emerging technologies in structures, materials, fuels, propulsion and control systems to help the transportation industry improve energy and environmental efficiency.

Efficiency On The Move™
The Polen Stage3 Advanced Efficiency Aircraft is our flying-test-platform for testing airframe, propulsion and control system innovations for the next generation ultra-efficient cost-effective air transportation.

Promoting Collaboration
The Dennis Polen Educational Foundation was founded to provide practical learning for young people interested in aviation. Today the foundations’ expanding role combines foundation programs with the Polen Special’s unique public personality to unite educational institutions, entrepreneurs and innovators and promote collaboration around a common challenge and purpose.

Efficiency Commitment
The Polen Company remains true to the concept of performance through efficiency. We are committed to finding, developing and bringing to market increasingly efficient products, systems and innovations for global transportation markets and beyond.
