  Lichtenstein/Saxony, August 12, 2009 – CENTURION recruits Near East Aviation as a distribution partner for the Near East. Thus Near East Aviation is the thirtieth distributor in CENTURION’s worldwide network of dealers.


“We are pleased to have enlisted such an influential and experienced partner for distribution of our engines in this important region,” commented CENTURION chairman of the board Jasper M. Wolffson. “The market for general aviation in the Near East is extremely dynamic. We are excellently positioned with our certifications and such a strong sales partner.”

Near East Aviation belongs to the Near East Group which, among other things, also operates the flight schools Ayla Aviation in Jordan and its sister academy Atlantic Flight Training in Coventry, Great Britain. Ayla Aviation is one of the most modern and largest flight schools in the Near East and is well-known for its advanced fleet of training aircraft. Both academies have been providing training on airplanes with CENTURION engines already for years and thus have ample experience with these diesel engines that have been tried and proven through practical application.

As the thirtieth distributor in CENTURION’s worldwide network of dealers, Near East Aviation will be responsible for selling CENTURION engines in Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Yemen, Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

CENTURION only recently recruited Aviation Rentals Limited in Great Britain as its 29th distributor. Aviation Rentals already operates numerous airplanes with CENTURION engines or rents them out to flight schools.


CENTURION is the world’s leading brand for certified, kerosene (diesel) piston aircraft engines for general aviation. CENTURION engines were the first in the world to be approved for kerosene piston engines. A global network of more than 300 authorized service centers is also available to CENTURION pilots. The more than 2,500 CENTURION engines in operation have to date completed more than 1.7 million flying hours altogether.
