Marketers are famous for saying, “If you act today…” but this time it’s really true. Teledyne Continental Motors (TCM) is offering a discount of $2,000 to $2,500 off Continental engines during the week of AOPA Aviation Summit.
It can be either a factory-new or factory-rebuilt engine, and you need not attend Summit in Tampa, Fla., to get the discount.
“We hope that this incentive will encourage TCM operators to purchase their replacement engine now before the tax benefits of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act expire in December,” stated TCM President Rhett Ross.
TCM is offering the following discounts on orders received by TCM between Monday, Nov. 2, and Sunday, Nov. 8, for factory new and factory rebuilt aftermarket engines: $2,500 off the 550 and 520 series engines, and $2,000 off the 470, 360, 240, and 200 series.

The caustic combination of crosswind and an ice-crusted runway sent the aircraft skidding into a snow bank built up by plowing along the runway edge.
AOPA expressed concern in a meeting with town officials from East Hampton, New York, that restrictions proposed to curb airport noise “overwhelmingly” generated by transient commercial flights would unfairly burden traditional airport users.
