Improvements by Continental allow RedHawk remanufactured C-172 to fly up to 2,100 hours.
RedHawk Training Aircraft has announced that the Time Before Replacement (TBR) for the Continental CD-135 engine has been increased from 1,500 to 2,100 hours. Continental Motors was able to make this lifetime extension because of key improvements, continuous testing, and field experience. The RedHawk was developed to offer a solution to the soaring prices of new training aircraft with advanced technology and this time extension for the diesel engine offers even more value. By flying another 600 hours on these reliable engines, flight training organizations can increase profits while still passing additional savings on to their customers.
