Electroair receives nod for 4-cylinder Continental ignition system; 6-cylinder in the works

At the AOPA Aviation Summit held earlier this month, Electroair revealed several new electronic ignition systems and developments.

Electroair has received FAA approval for its four-cylinder Continental Electronic Ignition Systems (i.e. O-200/IO-240). The approval of this ignition system includes many four cylinder Continental applications, including the Cessna 150 and Diamond DA-20, and many others, according to company officials. Continental four cylinder electronic ignition kits will be available within the next three to four weeks.

Now in development is a six cylinder electronic ignition system for certified aircraft. Electroair is working on systems for both Continental and Lycoming six cylinder engines. Electroair officials say they expect to begin receiving design approvals within the next four to six months. The projected list price for the six cylinder systems is $5,500. These systems will be available through the Electroair distribution network. The initial approved systems will be for normally aspirated engines.

Meanwhile, Electroair reports that flight testing of the Piper Light Twins is nearly complete and expects to finalize the documentation required for adding the Piper Light Twins to the Approved Model List shortly. This addition to the AML will include the Seminole, Twin Comanche, and Apache. Company officials said they hope to receive these approvals by the end of the year.
