Kit Plane Engine Choices

  • Continental® Motors brings to the Kit Plane market a wide range of aviation gasoline and Jet-A diesel engine products as shown below. We are known for our 100 year history and millions of flight hours’ worth of experience with our avgas engines in varying weights, compression ratios and horsepower. With a focus toward the future and global marketplace, our product line expands to include the internationally certified Centurion diesel engines and abounding STC’s.

    Currently powering numerous aircraft, the electronically managed, diesel series ranges in horsepower from 135-245 with ongoing development to expand power ranges. A few of the significant benefits are global fuel availability, pricing, and efficiency resulting in reduced operating costs for many parts of the world.

    On the avgas side of the product line, Continental® Motors Gold Standard Engines offer enhanced features, formerly available only on the Platinum and Special Edition engines. Enhancements made possible by Continental® Motors’s continued investment in technology and manufacturing as many can attest to if they’ve been on a factory tour.

    Since engine cylinders are many times top of mind, we might mention that our cylinders have several new features including plateau honed finish resulting in less friction, advanced automotive-style one-step valve guide and seat machining for excellent valve sealing and high flow venturi intake valve seats allowing for improved flow and efficiency.

    With manufacturing facilities in the USA and Germany, a worldwide distribution and service network, factory service centers, and technical/sales team spread across many continents; the company is positioned to meet the needs of all varieties of GA pilots and owners around the world.
