Austro Engine is proud to announce that the 180hp AE330’s TBO (Time between Overhaul) has been increased to 1,800 hours just after two years of its introduction to the market.
Jürgen Heinrich, Managing Director of Austro Engine and Diamond Aircraft Austria: “Austro Engine products have proven their outstanding capabilities in versatile operation profiles all over the globe, generating countless stories of success for our partners. On a retrospective view, we are certainly proud of having set entirely new standards in engine reliability, quality and operational efficiency for our customers, whose appreciated involvement in continuous product and service improvements have been vital and the key to success. Being energized by achievements, we are striving to further enhance operator’s experiences.”
The 180hp jetfuel engine AE330 is based on the successful and reliable 170 PS AE300. It provides more power than the AE300 at the same weight. Great fuel efficiency, reliability and easy operation make the AE330/AE300 the best aviation engines of today and the future.
At equal power the Austro’s jetfuel engines have a 45 % lower fuel burn than conventional piston aircraft engines running on AvGas. They produce significantly less exhaust emissions and are exceptionally silent. Especially flight schools, whose aircraft are operated on an above average level and are often located near resident areas, benefit from these qualities.
Very popular with pilots is the easy engine management by an electronic controlled system (ECU) with integrated single power lever design, as this allows them to focus on the actual flying. Given that the AE300/AE330 are multi-fuel certified, easy worldwide operability is not a problem unlike Avgas engines, because in certain regions of the world Avgas is hard to get and often at multiple the price of jet fuel.
More than 1,500 Austro jetfuel piston engines are in operation worldwide having produced more than one million flight hours.
