The CD170 Continental has found its match, and its match is a DR401, and this DR401 has found its happy first owner.
This remarkable tug should be the star of our booth at Aero2021 Friedrichshafen.
The performance measurement flights will take place as soon as temperatures go up. Certification will follow by summer.
Offering a maximum power equivalent to a 180 with constant speed propeller, the new-born should quickly find a place of choice in the heart of tug pilots with demanding standards.
And along with those hearts, the 170 will also share the upsides of the 155: silence, economy and no risk of damaging the engine on steep descents thanks to the engine water cooling.
