Continental - Shaft
Continental Motors Inc., has been a recognized world leader in the development of aviation products for over 100 years. Our aircraft piston engine leadership stretches from the A-70 radial engine, which established a new level of smoothness and reliability, to the engines for the Voyager aircraft, which successfully circumnavigated the globe without refueling. Whenever breakthroughs were made, we were there. From the Piper Cub to the setting of world altitude records for manned piston aircraft, Continental has led the way. We were the first to introduce the horizontally opposed cylinder configuration to help increase aircraft speeds and the first to introduce both fuel injection and turbocharging in general aviation aircraft. We also gain a competitive edge from our diversity.
