300 ‒ Series

  • Power is everything in aviation. Give an airplane more to play with and it'll climb better and cruise faster, putting a business meeting within arm's reach or extra vacation time in your pocket. Some of Continental's 300 series engines top the horsepower charts in this class - up to an impressive 225 horsepower in turbocharged and intercooled form. That's a remarkable .625 horsepower per cubic inch. Power is nothing without manners. All 360s have six smooth- running cylinders. And every 360 engine is fuel injected for outstanding efficiency and range. At 283 pounds, the TSIO-360-A rates among the lightest of all six-cylinder aircraft powerplants. Among Continental's newest 300 Series designs is the IO-360-AF (Alternative Fuel) developed for lower octane/unleaded fuels for international markets. For the money, you'd be hard pressed to find a better value in the air.
