Continental Unveils New CD-170R Engine For Rotary Applications

Continental Launches New Engine Designed for Rotary Wing Applications

Continental has announced the launch of its new CD-170R engine, designed specifically for rotary wing applications.

Revealed at Friedrichshafen, Germany, the CD-170R is the latest addition to Continental's CD-100 series and aims to enhance the performance of rotorcraft. The engine, which is awaiting certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), builds on the technology of its predecessor, the CD-170, with a 170-horsepower output and advanced Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) systems to improve fuel efficiency and operational reliability.

Distinguished by its turbocharged four-cylinder design, the CD-170R offers a more economical fuel consumption, approximately 7.9 gallons per hour in cruise conditions, and boasts a lighter frame by eliminating the gearbox--setting a new standard in power-weight ratios for the aviation industry. This engine is expected to serve not only the commercial aviation sector but also private operators and flight schools.

Dr. David Dörner, Vice President of Global Research and Development at Continental, highlighted the significance of this innovation, stating that the CD-170R is a pivotal advancement that will expand Continental's market reach and fulfill more specialized aviation needs. He emphasized the engine's user-friendly design, which includes rotorcraft-specific software that allows pilots to focus more on flight and mission-critical tasks rather than engine management.
