Thielert: first successes for extended life spans

The reorganization and development programs at the aircraft engine manufacturer Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH have been successful once again. In particular, the financial burdens connected with the insolvency have been considerably reduced for airplane owners. Thus the costs per flying hour have declined by approximately eight euro for the Centurion 2.0 and by approximately ten euro for the Centurion 1.7.

As Bruno M. Kübler, insolvency administrator for Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH, communicated today, the company has also succeeded in further developing the fuel feed pump for the Centurion 1.7 and Centurion 2.0 engines. Consequently, it was possible to extend the maintenance intervals for this new pump from 300 to 600 flying hours.

However, clutches and transmissions still have to be replaced after 300 flying hours. An increase up to 600 flying hours is not yet possible for safety reasons. Nonetheless, concerted efforts to extend the life span of these components continue to be carried out with absolute priority.

By employing targeted optimization measures the company has also succeeded in reducing the costs for transmission inspections by as much as 50 %, thus lowering the price for end customers to the same extent. In addition, the company has been able to reduce the inspection costs for the clutch of the Centurion 1.7 – and thus the price for the end customer as well.
