Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH offers products and services in two segments: Aircraft Engines and Technology & Prototyping.
In the Aircraft Engines segment, Thielert develops and manufactures certified state-of-the-art kerosene piston engines for general aviation as well as for unmanned aircraft (so-called “Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – UAV“).
Under the brand "CENTURION®" Thielert produces and sells aircraft engines, which can be run with both kerosene (jet fuel) and automotive Diesel (EN 590). Compared to conventional aviation gasoline power plants the CENTURION® engines reduce direct operating cost up to 60 percent. In addition to this, Thielert designs and produces aircraft electronics, particularly digital engine control systems.
It has only been possible to achieve a successful position in the market by using an intelligent combination of the latest technology and highly skilled employees, along with a high degree of flexibility and the comprehensive process safety. European EASA certifications as an aviation development, production and maintenance organization represent an excellent marketing basis.
Technology & Prototyping
Tailor-made development services and the production of engine components for the aircraft, automobile and defense industries are the focus of the Technology & Prototyping segment.
When manufacturing engine components such as crankshafts, camshafts, con rods, splined shafts, gears, cylinders and cylinder heads as well as crankcases, the machining processes are at the centre of attention. From the machining of the billet through to the grinding of the most intricate of contours, Thielert performs all the process steps in-house. Turning, milling, gun drilling and grinding – Thielert has mastered all these disciplines at the highest technological level.
