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
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.
