Besides the Austro Engine and the Canadian Lycoming1 version Diamond Aircraft now also certified the Continental Diesel engine CD-155 for retrofit. This gives the owners of existing DA42 TDIs the possibility to choose between three different engine types.
“For Diamond Aircraft it is very important to offer our customers possibilities to maintain the value of their aircraft. Particularly for those who have purchased their Diamond plane before 2009,” says Christian Dries, CEO Diamond Aircraft Austria.
“Continental Motors is pleased with Diamond’s decision to offer the CD-155 to its DA42 TDI customers. Adding this option represents a major commitment to the customer base,” said Ken Suda, President and Managing Director of Technify Motors GmbH (TMG), the German subsidiary of Continental Motors Group. “In particular, including the CD-155 to the type certificate adds a nice upgrade option for current DA42 TDI owners and operators,” he emphasized.
Conversions will be available at Diamond Aircraft Austria and Diamond Canada. FAA validation is pending.
Customers are reminded that orders of the CD-155 engines must be placed directly with Technify Motors.
