Centurion Receives European Certification For PA28 Retrofit

Diesel Powerplant Available For Cherokee, Warrior, Cadet Aircraft

The 155 hp Centurion 2.0s power pack has been certified in Europe for installation in Piper Cherokee, Cadet, and Warrior aircraft. The engine is the same diesel engine which has been installed in the Diamond DA40. EASA authorized the retrofit as of mid April, and the production launch of the new Centurion retrofit kit is underway. Deliveries are expected to begin this summer.

Piper PA28 operators retrofitting their avgas engine or exchange their old Centurion can now choose between two replacement engines: the Centurion 2.0 and the more powerful Centurion 2.0s. The Piper PA28 is the forth aircraft model — after the Cessna 172, Diamond DA40 and Robin DR400 — that can be equipped with the Centurion 2.0s

“A modern diesel piston engine in one of the best proven airframes of general aviation makes the Piper an everyday partner. With 20 hp more power thanks to the Centurion 2.0s, it will also become a top performer,” commented Centurion’s CEO, Jasper M. Wolffson.

At 100 percent load, the aircraft can reach a top cruising speed of 133 KTAS up to an altitude of 8,000 ft. The average fuel consumption of Jet Fuel or Diesel (DIN EN 590) during flight is just under six gallons per hour at a speed of 110 KTAS (at 70% power, 6,000 ft.). The climb rate up to an altitude of 6,000 ft. averages approximately 658 ft/min with a takeoff roll of 837 feet. The range with a standard tank is up to 850 NM, and the maximum takeoff weight is 2,440 pounds.

Like all aircraft equipped with a Centurion engine, the PA28 also has a fully electronic engine and propeller control system with single-lever control. The time between replacement (TBR) for the Centurion 2.0s is currently still 1,200 flight hours. The goal is to extend the TBR to 1,500 hours, as it is the case for the Centurion 2.0.

On the production side, the company has intensively prepared itself for the new product in the recent weeks. Orders as well as requests for demo flights are currently being accepted.
