Continental Motors

Among the engines used in Light-Sport Aircraft or light kit-built aircraft, the most widely known is Continental’s O-200, for many decades a legend in aviation powerplants. Pilots are attracted to an amazing variety of airframes, but they all share one desire: to have their engine to perform in a dependable manner for hour after hour. While some new engines have worthy characteristics, they have to pass the test of time and it can take many years to truly establish a high level of trust. Continental has that history leaving no wonder why aircraft manufacturers consider the famous O-200 engine from Continental Motors.

Industry Support — One of the light aircraft industry’s most successful producers is Zenith Aircraft. The Mexico, Missouri builder has supplied thousands of aircraft kits that today are flying in countries wide and far. “We ship Zenith kits around the world and Continental engines are well known and supported in all the markets where we ship kits. Their engines have a great reputation among pilots and they are a popular choice with our customers,” reports Zenith Aircraft leader, Sebastian Heintz. “Our kit aircraft customers can choose which engine type to install in their Zenith kit, and many choose the Continental engine after researching all the different available engines. They work well, perform great, and represent good value!” Zenith is very excited about the Jet-A diesel engines from Continental because Jet-A diesel fuel is more readily available than avgas in many developing markets and the company says this helps them increase sales in new aviation markets. While many countries do not offer avgas like 100LL, diesel fuel is commonly available.

A Century of History — Continental Motors brings their 100-year history and millions of flight hours’ worth of experience to the Light-Sport and light kit aircraft market in a range of aviation gasoline and Jet-A diesel engine products with a focus toward the future and a global marketplace. A shining example is the company’s internationally certified Centurion diesel engine. Currently powering numerous aircraft, the electronically managed diesel engine starts at 135 horsepower, a superb performance level for ever more capable Light-Sport or kit aircraft.

Always Improving; Worldwide Service — Continental continues to investment in technology and manufacturing efficiency. With manufacturing facilities in the USA and Germany, a worldwide distribution and service network, factory service centers, and technical/sales teams spread across many continents; the company is positioned to meet the needs of pilots and owners around the world. Beside Zenith light aircraft companies using Continental include Kitfox Aircraft, American Legend, and Fisher Flying Products among others.

  Continental (ECi) -- Titan engine
CubCrafters made the Titan engine well known to Light-Sport Aircraft enthusiasts when it added the 180-horsepower engine to their line of Cub-like airplanes. It made a rather docile flying machine into a macho machine and that appears to have helped the company increase their sales. However, now you can also find this engine in the American Legend Cub-type airplanes as well as Sportair USA's Outback model manufactured by Zlin. All three models now boast this impressive performing engine, and more airframe users are coming.
  Continental Motors -- O-200D LSA engine (2014)
Continental is one of the most familiar brand names in all of aviation. The company's engines have powered more airplanes than most pilots could possibly name and their experience over 100 years (80 in aviation) is legendary. Pilots and mechanics around the world know Continental Motors and you can get service at virtually any airport. We speak with Ron Humphreys who gives us the details of the LSA-specific O-200D engine. We even touch on Continental's diesel engine.
