The Continental Motors Group and Piper Germany are hosting a customer event June 26 to 28, 2015. Our goal is to gather pilots, operators and mechanics to spend a weekend discussing engine care and maintenance, the future of avionics and navigation data.
Piper Germany will welcome you at their facility located on the Kassel-Calden airport (EDVK), Germany. We encourage you to fly in with your aircraft as our experts will be there to give you advice on engines and maintenance (Continental Motors and Lycoming).
Continental Diesel Demonstration Flights Experience flying an aircraft equipped with a Continental Diesel engine. Learn about single-lever control, FADEC control and smooth and silent operation. Piper Archer DX and Cessna 172 will be available.

How to care for your engine; detect the first signs of trouble, maintenance and operating tips and tricks (this seminar also applies to non Continental Motors Avgas engines).
Continental AvGas Engine Ignition System Service and Maintenance Your engine’s ignition system is essential to smooth operation. Discuss simple maintenance procedures and how to set the magneto for optimal performance. When is it time to have a close look at the ignition system? How old are your magnetos? Learn everything you need to know from the experts who manufacture the most popular magnetos on the market (formerly known as Bendix).

Avgas Engines: Exploring Your Options as Your Engine Approaches TBO Whether you are flying a Continental Motors or Lycoming engine, what are the differences between a factory new engine, a factory rebuilt engine or an field overhauled engine? What do you get in these cases and why do the prices vary?
