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 was overwhelmed by the warm, southern welcome received when the Ninety-Nines toured the Continental Motors factory. You all were so gracious and inviting and treated us royally. Thank you for the graciousness and informative presentation. My mind is still spinning from all of the information that was packed into the culminating hour-long seminar. Our pilots would love to have had the opportunity I had to see the plant and hear about maintaining engine longevity.“
