Continental Motors Extends TBOs Up To 400 Hours

Nearly All Engines Produced After February, 2012 Will See A 200 Hour Increase

Continental Motors has announced TBO increases up to 400 hours on Gold Standard Factory produced engines. The majority of engine models manufactured after February 2012 will see TBOs increase by 200 hours with frequent flyers receiving up to 400 hours.

In 2012, Continental Motors introduced its Gold Standard Factory Rebuilt and New Engines. These engines incorporate improvements in technology and manufacturing processes that have allowed us to increase the TBO. The increased TBO is applicable to nearly all Continental Motors Factory produced engines beginning in February 2012 as designated by serial number 1006000 and higher. Nearly all models will receive the benefit of a 200 hour increase over the existing TBO. Aircraft owners that fly 40 hour per month will receive up to 400 hours.

“For more than 85 years Continental Motors has strived to deliver the most technologically advanced, highest value piston aircraft engines to the general aviation market.” stated Rhett Ross, President of Continental Motors. “We are pleased to offer increased TBOs at no increase in price as we continue our commitment to enhancing the ownership experience.” continued Ross.

Within the aviation market, its operations include parts trading, spare parts supply, piston aviation engine manufacturing through Continental Motors, Inc., flight training, and after sales support.
