Teledyne Continental Motors (TCM) has introduced its O-200 Lightweight Engine, the first American-made aviation piston engine purpose-built for the Light Sport and kit aircraft markets.
The O-200 Lightweight Engine offers aircraft builders a certified and pedigreed engine that is lighter in weight without compromising performance, durability or service life, said Rhett Ross, TCM president.
Sporting identical dimensions to the O-200A, the O-200 engine offers a 199-pound dry weight and comes complete with starter, ignition and fuel systems. Additional features include lightweight cylinders, precision balanced crankshaft, sprocket propeller flange and weight-matched connecting rods.
The list price is $21,499. Orders can be placed immediately, with delivery dates beginning in August 2009.
As an added incentive to builders considering an O-200 Lightweight Engine, TCM will accept any aviation engine core in the 85- to 115-horsepower range regardless of manufacturer. The engine need only be a complete and operable aviation engine. Details and limitations are available on TCMs web site.
