Thank you for your valued counsel regarding our IO-550B68B engine, and for the measures that were undertaken to resolve a potential problem with the fuel delivery system. It was good to be in the safe hands of the men at your Fairhope, Alabama facility....Thank you for your kind assistance that has been so appreciated over the years. Dr. Joseph Hudson
For decades, students cutting their teeth in training airplanes were introduced to the wonders of flight powered by Continental’s 0200. Pilots always remember the airplane they first soloed. With the amazing O200, they’ll remember the engine too. The 200 series ranging from 95-125 horsepower includes our FADEC, Lightweight D and Alternative Fuel AF models.
Power is everything in aviation. Give an airplane more to play with and it’ll climb better and cruise faster, putting a business meeting within arm’s reach or extra vacation time in your pocket. Some of Continental’s 300 series engines top the horsepower charts in this class--up to an impressive 225 horsepower in turbocharged and intercooled form.
Powering the majority of Cessna 180 and fixed-gear 182 aircraft from 1953 through 1986, this workhorse of an engine embodies simplicity, efficiency and ruggedness. Ranging in output from 225 to 260 horsepower, the 470 engines come equipped with either a very reliable carburetor or Continental’s extremely efficient continuous-flow injection system.
What do you say about an engine family that ranges in power from 285 horsepower all the way to 376 horsepower? Innovative? Versatile? Amazing? How about all of the above? The 500 series includes both 520 and 550 cubic-inch models in either naturally aspirated or turbocharged configurations.
“I wanted to take a moment and express my thanks for hosting the Bonanza Operator's Seminar and Fly-in at your facilities in Fairhope and Mobile. We had a great time and while the sessions were oriented towards owners as opposed to technicians, I can say that I walked away with more knowledge about your engines and products than I arrived with.
You did a fantastic job of presenting the material in a fashion such that was easy to comprehend and not too technical for the average pilot. You also have a great facility, friendly staff, and your products are absolutely great. We fly a Bonanza with your engine for AOG work; it hasn't given us any trouble at all. “
