Continental Aerospace Technologies™: Heritage with a Future

Continental® is a vertically integrated manufacturer of piston aircraft engines with over 110 years of continuous operation. The company designs, certifies, manufactures, and distributes a range of gasoline and Diesel aviation engines worldwide.

Continental® has been a recognized as the world leader in the development of aviation products. From the Piper Cub to the setting of altitude world records for manned piston aircraft, Continental® has led the way, bringing many technological innovations to GA and becoming the engine supplier to the most prestigious aircraft manufacturers.

Continental was first to introduce the horizontally opposed cylinder engine configuration, fuel injection and turbo-charging in general aviation aircraft. Continental Motors again delivered cutting edge technology with the first certified Full Authority Digital Engine Controller (FADEC) and service system to piston-powered general aviation aircraft.

Continental® also offers a range of Jet-A piston engines, with a power output from 135 hp. up to 300 hp. Over 6,000 engines have been delivered and have accumulated over 7 million flight hours.

Continental® invests over 4% of its revenue in R&D, with engineering departments located in the USA and Germany. The company doesn’t only focus on engine blocks but also on fuel delivery systems, ignition systems and FADEC’s.

To have total control over production and product quality, Continental has developed a unique vertically integrated manufacturing process. Most of the manufacturing process is kept in-house, using technology and processes originally developed by the automotive industry, such as lean manufacturing and constant quality monitoring. Continental® is moving into a brand-new factory in Mobile, Alabama, to bring its manufacturing capacities to the next century. The new facility will be over 250,000 square feet (24,000 m2) with the majority being dedicated to advanced engine and parts manufacturing.  The facility will be populated with brand new manufacturing equipment. Continental® upon completion of the new factory, will operate two ultra-modern manufacturing plants, located in the USA and Germany.

Continental® also makes available a full range of services to general aviation aircraft owners and operators. Continental Motors Services™ offer airframe and engine MRO services at its Fairhope, Alabama, location. Situated on the H.L. Sonny Callahan Airport (KCQF), in a modern new facility, CMS offers airframe maintenance and repair services, piston engine overhauls and repairs, avionics services (sales, installation, bench repair of legacy avionics, RVSM compliance, and certification), new customized interiors fabrication and refurbishment.

Continental Services™, through its Miami, Florida, based subsidiary, United Turbine, provides MRO services and part sales for PT6 operators. United Turbine offers a unique and industry leading warranty on its PT6 overhauls (7 years or TBO, whichever comes first). A loaner/lease program is also available.

With an experience of over a century, Continental® continues to invest in the future of aviation. With sales, support and services operations in Northern and Latin America, Europe and China the company stands proudly behind its products and offers industry leading products and support worldwide.
