CONTINENTAL DIESEL/ JET A1 ENGINES 2.0 AND 2.0S HAVE BEEN APPROVED FOR EXTRA TIME BETWEEN REPLACEMENTS: NOW 2100 HRS!
Flying an aircraft with a diesel engine is profitable in at least three ways: 1) Diesel is a lot cheaper than gasoline, 2) the diesel engine fuel burn is 18/ 22 liters pr. hour, and 3) now the Continental diesel engines also have a longer TBR (time between replacements): 2100 hrs (compared to 1200 and 1500 hrs, respectively, before). This means 600-900 hrs more between overhauls!
If you're considering replacing your piston engine with a diesel engine, now is the time to seriously think it through - and eventually book it. It is quite the investment to have the conversion performed, but it's never been more profitable than now to fly in diesel powered aircraft - due to the combination of diesel prices compared to gasoline and to the recently added extra time between replacements for Continental Diesel engines 2.0 and 2.0S (approved by EASA).
At our facilities at both Vamdrup and Eggomoen, we have skilled staff with massive experience in this exact field. If you're ready to book, we recommend you to contact us asap for us to make room in the calendar during the winter months when flying is not so attractive anyway. As a result, your aircraft will be ready for flying much cheaper from early Spring next year.
