Continental Motors Sees Increased Interest In Jet-A Engines
Continental Motors is seeing increased interest in its Jet A engines, according to company president and CEO Rhett Ross.
Earlier this year, Piper Aircraft selected its new CD-170 compression ignition engine fueled with Jet A and available in standard or counter rotating versions to power the Piper PA-44 Seminole. The world’s leading multiengine trainer will be available with Jet-A counter rotating engines, giving flight schools and training organizations a single lever, FADEC, training system with an history of innovation, simplicity and economy.
After selecting the CD-155 Jet-A engine to power the Archer DX, Piper Aircraft extends its Jet-A powered range of aircraft with the PA-44. The Piper Seminole is an advanced twin-engine trainer that has enabled thousands of pilots to earn their multi-engine rating. It is used by flight schools across all continents and is known for its reliability, all metal construction, stable flight characteristics, counter rotating engines, and its modern avionics suite.
The CD-100 family of Jet-A burning engines is a time-proven platform with more than 5,250 engines delivered and over 5,500,000 flight hours in service. Ranging from 135 to 170 hp. These engines are the most widely used aviation compression ignition engines in the world.
