Power is everything in aviation. Give an airplane more to play with, and it will climb better and cruise faster, putting a business meeting within arm’s reach or extra vacation time in your pocket. Some Continental® 360 series engines top the horsepower charts in this class, up to an impressive 220 horsepower in turbocharged and aftercooled form.
However, power is nothing without manners. All 360 AvGas engines have six smooth-running cylinders and are fuel injected for outstanding efficiency and range. Among the newest 360 AvGas engine series designs by Continental® is the IO-360-AF (Alternative Fuel) developed for lower octane/unleaded fuels in international markets. For the money, you’d be hard pressed to find a better value in the air.
THE 360 SERIES IS A FAMILY OF AIR COOLED, NATURALLY ASPIRATED, HORIZONTALLY OPPOSED, 6-CYLINDER, GASOLINE, FUEL INJECTED, SPARK IGNITION, FOUR-STROKE, DIRECT DRIVE, RIGHT (CW) ROTATING, AIRCRAFT ENGINE WITH MANUAL ENGINE CONTROLS FOR FIXED WING AIRCRAFT.
