Bangkok Aviation Center finished 1,000 hours with CENTURION engines in record time
In less than six month, Bangkok Aviation Center (BAC), Thailand's biggest private owned commercial flying school has finished 1,000 hours on their Diamond DA42 Twin Star.
Although training started only last year in November, the brandnew aircraft fitted with two CENTURION kerosene aircraft engines manufactured by Thielert Aircraft Engines has already clocked 1,000 flight hours in mid-April.
Both Chief Flight Instructor Capt. Vachirakorn and his team are enthusiastic about the positive flight characteristics of the new aircraft generation.
The aircraft convinces of the combination of the modern composite aircraft with its state-of-the art kerosene aircraft engines.
In addition to the twin-engined DA42 the flight school is operating with three single-engined aircraft, which are also equipped with CENTURION engines. These aircraft are flying 130 hours per month and have already flown 1,300 flight hours.
Once again, reaching 1,000 flight hours in less than half a year shows the safety and reliability of the CENTURION engines. Furthermore using the kerosene piston engines reduces operating costs compared to conventional AVGAS engines significantly. For this reason they are suitable especially for flight schools, charter companies, clubs, and every pilot who wants to enjoy lower operating costs for fuel and service.
