The 1000th Austro Engine AE300

Austro Engine, a company of the Diamond Aircraft Group, is celebrating the completion of the 1000th AE300 turbo charged diesel aircraft engine.

Jürgen Heinrich, CEO Austro Engine: “The 1,000th AE300 symbolizes a significant milestone, reflecting the engine series' quality and reliability. With a Time between Overhaul of currently 1,500 hours our customers benefit tremendously from lower downtimes and reduced total operational costs. For 2015 we are working on an extended power version delivering 180 hp.”

With the 170 hp AE300, Austro Engine has launched the leading Jet A1 piston engine in General Aviation. More than 480,000 flight hours have proved the power plant's reliability and endurance, the highest performance and efficiency compared to other products in this field.

At equal power the engine has a 45 % lower fuel burn than conventional piston aircraft engines running on AvGas. It produces significantly less exhaust emissions and is exceptionally silent.

Christian Dries, CEO Diamond Aircraft: “2014 was a successful year for Diamond Aircraft and Austro Engine. This is mainly because of our innovative and reliable propulsion system. I expect the AE300's Time between Overhaul to be increased to 1,800 hours.”
