Continental® has been a recognized world leader in the development of aviation products. 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 turbo-charging in general aviation aircraft. We delivered cutting edge technology with our Full Authority Electronic Controls (FADEC) and service system to piston powered general aviation aircraft.
