For years, customers have enjoyed Continental® PMA parts for Lycoming®* engines. In 2017, Continental® introduced Prime™ as the new name for this well-established line of parts.
Customers now recognize Prime™ parts for the quality, dependability, and value of our FAA-approved premium parts.
Today, we are taking our commitment to our customers to the next level by releasing our new line of Continental Prime™ certified engines, designed as a direct drop-in replacement for Lycoming®* engines. Following the Piper Aircraft®* decision to equip the new Pilot 100 with a Prime™ engine, the Cessna®* 172 now benefits from a direct drop-in replacement package that includes the certified engine and STC installation in one economical package.
The Continental® experience, accumulated over 110 years in power systems for general aviation, allowed us to design the perfect drop-in replacement engines that benefit from more time in the air and less time in maintenance. Continental Prime™ certified engines are not only exceptionally competitively priced: they also bring multiple advantages that directly benefit your operations and bottom line. These advantages include an exceptional engine warranty and many optional upgrades like NiC3 cylinders, ensuring that you have everything you need to succeed at the best value.
