|Manufacturer of CENTURION® Kerosene Piston Aircraft Engines|
Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH has gradually acquired an outstanding reputation as an international provider of innovative kerosene piston aircraft engines and hi-tech and engine components in general aviation.
Our many years of expertise accumulated in the construction and production of high-performance motors for motor racing provided the basis for the innovative kerosene piston aircraft engine project. In 2001, Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH received developer and manufacturer certification in accordance with JAR (Joint Aviation Requirements), which was a decisive step toward the development and production of aircraft engines. Certification as a maintenance organization for piston aircraft engines, engine integration, and propeller control systems followed three years later.
Thielert Aircraft Engines has built up its global sales and service network in recent years and currently has 25 sales partners and almost 300 service centers in 50 countries around the world. In 2007 alone, Thielert was able to secure 93 new service centers and 7 new sales partners. This allows the aircraft engine manufacturer to perform service and maintenance work on the CENTURION® engines on a global level.
Engines from the CENTURION® series have now been certified for use in all major global markets. Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH also holds supplemental type certification for many types of propeller and small aircraft models, such as for the Cessna 172, Cessna 206, and Piper PA 28 series. A significant market share has been secured with the sale of more than 2,000 CENTURION® engines being sold since their introduction in 2002 (CENTURION® 1.7) and in 2007 (CENTURION® 2.0).
