Aero-TV Checks Out The Jet A-Powered Diesel Skyhawk!!!

January 13, 2010

Cessna, Thielert Partner On 172S Turbo Diesel Option

Last fall, we asked ANN readers to, “Just imagine how cool will it be for a student pilot… on their first cross-country flight… to ask the lineperson to ‘fill it with Jet-A, please’ — and then point to their Cessna 172!” The new Skyhawk TD (turbo diesel, of course) features a Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) equipped Thielert Centurion 2.0 liter engine. The DOHC (double overhead camshaft) inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine develops 155 horsepower, is certified to operate on Jet-A fuel, is liquid cooled and drives a composite three-blade constant speed propeller.

Thielert was issued a supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Skyhawk in March, allowing Cessna to offer a factory-installed Thielert engine. The engine features low specific fuel consumption, electronic engine control systems and improved hot-and-high engine performance.

With increased range and endurance, Cessna says the Skyhawk TD will offer an ideal solution for special mission applications like forestry patrol, wildlife conservation efforts, pipeline/power line patrol, traffic reporting and airborne law enforcement, according to Cessna. News of a Skyhawk turbo-diesel was not entirely unexpected. As ANN reported, Cessna announced a partnership with Thielert on “future projects” earlier this year.

The Wichita gang is also making the Garmin GFC700 Automatic Flight Control (AFCS) and Flight Director (FD) system standard equipment on most Skyhawk models. The autopilot function selector will be conveniently located on the Garmin G1000 flight display with the GFC700 capable of using all of the data available within the G1000 avionics system. Among the new navigational features included is all-digital, dual-channel, two-axis flight control — featuring an attitude-based (versus rate-based) autopilot.

The GFC700 on the Skyhawk also features a Flight Director, offering pitch and roll guidance to show the pilot the attitude for a standard climb or turn. The system also sports Flight Level Change capability — to ensure the aircraft maintains airspeed while climbing or descending to a pre-selected altitude — and a Go Around mode. Additionally, Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) with Lateral Performance, Vertical Guidance approach (LPV) and Vertical Navigation (VNAV) capabilities; Garmin SafeTaxi; and Garmin FliteCharts became standard for the Skyhawk, Skylane and Stationair starting with 2007 models. The Garmin ChartView powered by Jeppesen is optional.
