Continental Motors, Inc. has introduced its TSIO-550-N1B, expanding turbo normalized engine options for Cirrus SR22 aircraft. Current owners now have the opportunity to enjoy the same powerful turbo performance as a new SR22T aircraft, company officials said.
“Passing through 12,000 feet, you are still climbing at 1,000 feet per minute getting you to the flight levels faster than you ever have before,” states Keith Chatten, Director of Product Development and Applications Engineering. “Flight tests show that the TSIO-550-N1B reaches 25,000 feet in just over 23 minutes and is quieter due to the 200 rpm reduction. The Climb Rate, Cruise Performance and Fuel Economy are unmatched.
The TSIO-550-N1B gives the pilot the option to choose between Best Power, which gives you more speed, or Best Economy which gives you more efficiency. Up to now owners did not have this option, company officials said.
“We built a true turbocharged engine, not a turbo for an engine,” said Michael Gifford, Director of Factory Services. “When Cirrus customers purchase our TSIO-550-N1B engine, they will receive Factory Engine Warranty and Support, Quieter Operations at 2500 rpm, Performance at Sea Level and a true 315 horsepower engine, not to mention alternative fuel compatibility.”
Engine price includes engine, STC, and no unlike core fee. For further details and to price your engine, call 800-326-0089.
