Cessna plans more diesel engines after agreeing deal with Thielert

Cessna has

reached agreement with Thielert Aircraft Engines to

collaborate on future diesel engine programmes.Full details will be announced later this year, but John

Doman, Cessna Vice President, Worldwide Propeller Aircraft Sales, said: “We think the Thielert engine may provide a very worthwhile power

option for many of our customers since it runs on jet fuel and diesel. We have had discussions with Frank Thielert and his group for

some time, and we think the time is right to move forward.”

“We have a number of products that are of interest to Cessna and we

are excited to be moving forward in our relationship,” said Frank

Thielert, CEO of Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH. “The benefits are

documented, so we have great confidence the customers of Cessna would

be pleased with the savings and reliability.”

German engine manufacturer Thielert has won several European certifications since 2002 for

retrofitting diesel engines into Cessna aircraft.
