  Oshkosh, Wisconsin, July 29, 2014 - As the world market leader for Diesel and AvGas aircraft engines, Continental Motors Group Co., Ltd. of Hong Kong, China (CMG) moves forward with forming a one-stop-shop for General Aviation engines, under one single brand. The Diesel engines known and sold under the brand name “Centurion” will be re-named to ”Continental Diesel” abbreviated as “CD” For example, the former Centurion 2.0s is now called CD-155.

The diesel products, which have delivered in excess of 4,000 engines powering more than 2,600 aircraft now includes the:

- The Centurion 2.0/2.0s engines are now the CD-100 series engine with 135 and 155 hp

The “single-brand” product offering and integrated global sales, service and support operations is important to ensure that our customers receive the best products and services,” said Rhett Ross, Vice President of AVIC International and Director of Continental Motors Group. “Aligning our divisions to one strategy ensures a consistent message and product line to meet the global market opportunities,” he went on to say.
