The presence and development of private or small aviation in Russia, Kazakhstan and CIS countries with aircraft made by Cessna, Piper Aircraft and other manufacturers is currently limited by the absence of special fuel and its high cost. At the moment, AVGAS 100LL is the dominant fuel for the aircraft with Lycoming and Continental piston engines. It is hardly available outside the USA or Europe and it is supposed to disappear completely in the near future. Aerojet Baltic installs diesel engines as the official distributor of Technify Engines GmbH.

  • С-2.0, 135 hp
  • С -2.0S, 155 hp

Savings of more than € 100,000 for 1,500 flight hours

Savings of more than € 120,000 for 1,500 flight hours

These engines are installed into Cessna-172, Piper-28, Diamond DA-40/DA-42, Robin DR-400 and other aircraft. They are completed with their own reducing gear and three-bladed controllable pitch propeller.
