    Continental CD-300 Jet-A Engine  

    Continental® continues its leadership in advanced technology by offering a line of engines to meet the needs of a growing global market. Jet-A piston engines offer distinctive advantages as aircraft engines. A diesel cycle engine is designed for continuous high stress, making it suitable for aviation applications. Also by design, a Jet-A piston engine cannot operate too lean. Self ignition means no danger of detonation, since fuel is not introduced until the optimal moment of combustion. The CD-300 is a geared, liquid-cooled and turbo-charged engine. It is controlled by two redundant full FADEC. Pilot workload is lightened by the use of a single lever power control that adjusts thrust and propeller RPM's automatically. This is another example of Continental's commitment to the advancement of general aviation technology.

    The CD-300 is a 4-valve, 6-cylinder Diesel engine in V configuration with Common Rail Direct Injection. The engine is Twin-Turbo-charged, Liquid-Cooled and incorporates a Wet Oil Sump as well as a Dual Redundant FADEC System, Integrated Gearbox and Propeller Governor. Take-Off power is 300 HP @ 3880 RPM. EASA Certified, FAA Validation Pending.
