Thielert Receives STCs For More Centurion-Powered PA28s

Engine Also Approved For Use In Australia, Croatia

Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH announced Monday it has obtained supplemental type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for use of its Centurion 1.7 diesel engine in additional Piper PA28-series planes. The engine is now approved for retrofit into Piper series PA28-140, -150, -160, -180 and -151 aircraft, in addition to the original -161.

"The Piper PA28 is one of the most popular aircraft in General Aviation, after the Cessna 172. With these new certifications we now cover almost all series of these two aircraft models", said Frank Thielert, CEO and founder of Thielert Aircraft Engines.

Thielert also announced that on May 2, the Croatian aviation authority approved EASA certifications for the Centurion 1.7, its installation in the Cessna 172 and Robin DR400, and the supplemental type certification for the higher-performance Centurion 4.0.

Australia's aviation authority also approved the supplemental type certifications for the Piper PA28 on May 24. With the new STC, Croatia and Australia have been added to the list of countries that allow retrofit of the economical diesel into the ubiquitous PA28.

"The strategy of offering pre-assembled installation kits with our motors for used aircraft has been so successful for Cessnas and Pipers that we are going to start offering our kits for Robins in the near future", Thielert said.

The Thielert group, founded in 1989, is the world’s leading provider of certified kerosene/diesel jet fuel piston aircraft engines for General Aviation. As a certified development, production and maintenance company to the aviation industry, Thielert AG became the world’s first company to obtain certification for a jet-fuel piston engine.
