CONTINENTAL MOTORS ANNOUNCES THE IO-360 ALTERNATIVE FUEL ENGINE IS SELECTED BY GERMAN MANUFACTURER

October 4, 2011 – (Mobile, AL) – Continental Motors, Inc. (CMI) is pleased to announce that Flight Design of Germany has selected CMI’s IO-360-AF engine for their new C4 certified four seat aircraft currently under development.  A full-scale mockup of the IO-360-AF engine and aircraft were on display during Flight Designs Press Event at AOPA Summit 2011 in Hartford Connecticut where the partnership was announced.
            “We are excited Flight Design selected Continental Motors to power their newest aircraft,” said Rhett Ross, President, Continental Motors. “We think the IO360-AF engine, which is designed for alternative fuels, is the perfect fit for Flight Design’s new C4 aircraft and further demonstrates Continental’s reputation for delivering innovative products that are backed by an experienced staff and a 100-year history,” continued Ross.
            The 6-cylinder IO-360-AF (Alternative Fuel) will operate on 100LL avgas as well as alternative fuel(s) to 100LL.  Beyond the alternative fuel advantage, the IO-360 series has an excellent reputation for reliability, long life and smooth operation.
            Being rated in other airframe installations at up to 210 horsepower, the IO-360-AF engine is able to be easily de-tuned to the 180 horsepower range required for the C4, producing that power at a reduced 2550 RPM, resulting in quieter operation and promising reliable and trouble-free operation over the lifetime of the engine. The IO-360-AF engine offers a 2,000 hour Time Between Overhaul (TBO) and is backed by Continental’s industry leading warranty and service support. 
            Flight Design is planning first flights of the C4 prototype in early 2012 with certification later that year.  Customer deliveries will begin in early 2013, with some C4 “Early Bird” special promotion order incentive delivery positions still available.
