FADEC for All Continentals

Jim Campbell's interview with incoming Teledyne Continental Motors president Rhett Ross is available now as a podcast. It's 16 minutes long and well worth a listen. Ross is obviously still acclimating to the new assignment, but he handled Campbell's questions with aplomb.

The surprise takeaway for me was when Ross said that TCM's ultimate goal is to be able to offer FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) for all Continental engines, whether for new aircraft or for the aftermarket.

That would be a historic step in the right direction, wouldn't it?
