CD-135 - kerosene piston engine with 135 hp

Continental Motors Group offers with CD-135 a jet fuel piston engine for general aviation with a take off power of 99 kW (135 hp). The CD-135 is a turbo charged 4-cylinder in-line engine which is EASA certified since August 2006 and FAA certified since October 2006. The predecessor Centurion 1.7 is certified by the European Aviation Authorities since May 2002 and the FAA certified since October 2003. The weight of all Centurion engines 1.7 and CD-135 is identical so that each 1.7 l engine can be replaced by a CD-135.

The CD-135 is certified for the use of both kerosene and diesel (DIN EN590) and is running with the two fuels in any mixture ratio. The engine has a time between replacement (TBR) of 2,100 hrs.
