Accelerate your Cessna Skywagon or Skylane to speeds in excess of 182 MPH with a P. Ponk SUPER EAGLE engine conversion.



We call our engine the SUPER EAGLE, however, the official FAA model designation is
P.Ponk O-470-50
 
  • SHORTER TAKEOFFS
  • INCREASED RATE OF CLIMB
  • FASTER CRUISE SPEEDS
  • INCREASED TBO
  • LOWER PER MILE OPERATING COST

.

The P. Ponk SUPER EAGLE engine conversion puts additional 35 to 45 horsepower under your cowl for about the same price as a factory rebuilt engine. Your aircraft will takeoff shorter, climb faster, cruise faster and be less expensive to operate on a per mile basis.

To create the SUPER EAGLE we modify a stock Continental O-470 or modify a stock Continental
TSIO 520
engine. Although these two engines require different modifications the end result is the same. A precision built 265 to 275 HP carbureted engine that will dramatically increase the performance of your aircraft.

The SUPER EAGLE gives you the capability of higher cruise speeds with little if any increase in fuel consumption. Being a carburated engine there is virtually no change in your operation or maintenance procedures.

With the SUPER EAGLE you will reach your destination sooner which means fewer hours on both your engine and airframe. Flight test have produced speeds up to 189 MPH using aircraft that do not have any airframe or speed modifications installed. With the increase in cruise speed and the extended TBO on the SUPER EAGLE you can expect to fly about 60,000 miles farther than with a stock O-470 before overhaul. That's more than 20 trips across the United States.
