For years, customers have enjoyed Continental® Prime™ PMA parts for Lycoming®* engines. In 2017, Continental® introduced Prime™ as the new name for this well-established line of parts.
Customers now recognize Prime™ parts for the quality, dependability, and value of our FAA-approved premium parts. Today, we are taking our commitment to our customers to the next level by releasing our new line of Continental Prime™ certified engines. Designed and certified as a drop-in replacement for Lycoming®* engines, Piper Aircraft®* selected the Continental Prime™ IO-370 engine to power the Pilot 100 trainer aircraft (will also be available on the Archer LX and TX later this year).
The Continental® experience, accumulated over 110 years in power systems for general aviation, allowed us to design the perfect drop-in replacement engines that benefit from more time in the air and less time in maintenance.
Continental Prime™ certified engines are not only extremely competitively priced: they also bring multiple advantages that will directly benefit your operations and bottom line. These advantages include an exceptional engine warranty and many optional upgrades like NiC3® cylinders, ensuring that you have everything you need to succeed at the best value.
