News, facts, and comments on the coming revolution for piston-engine aircraft.
In 1998, one diesel engine flew on a converted airplane for the first time since 1945. Today, close to 4,000 singles and twins are flying. This is the beginning of a worldwide trend which will eventually allow a rebirth of the piston-engined aircraft, around new specs and new missions.

Precision and correction regarding ownership of Continental Motors.
Ms. Gloria Liu, Business Analyst with Continental, commenting on our latest information on the aero diesel arena, asked us to clarify that Continental Motors Inc. (CMI) was acquired by AVIC International, not by CAIGA. CAIGA (China Aviation Industry General Aircraft Co., Ltd.) is the company that merged with Cirrus Aircraft. Ultimately AVIC International and CAIGA are related companies as part of a larger conglomerate, but CMI is a direct subsidiary of AVIC.
