Aero-TV: CiES Fuel-Quantity and e-Throttle Systems Praised

Aero-News Network

Jim Campbell interviews Scott Philiben, CiES President, about CiES' recent development of a cutting-edge fly-by-wire throttle system. This sophisticated system is a key component of Safran Electrical & Power's ENGINeUS electric aero-engine, which powers the Diamond Aircraft eDA40. The eDA40, a light, two-to-three-place trainer aircraft, is notably on track to become the first electric aircraft certified under FAA Part 23. This advancement not only highlights CiES's contribution to enhancing aircraft performance and safety but also underscores the company's pivotal role in promoting sustainable aviation technologies.

Fuel Display Upgrades: Go Digital

The Aviation Consumer - Larry Anglisano, Scott Philiben

With the accident reports littered with fuel exhaustion events, it's logical to consider a big-screen engine monitor with digital fuel quantity display. But we often see disappointed buyers who shortchange the install by using the existing aging fuel tank sensors and failing wiring. Worse, they might spend time and money having the old sensors removed, repaired and reinstalled only to fail again. In this episode of Panel Planner 101 Live, Aviation Consumer Editor Larry Anglisano, along with CiES founder Scott Philiben, talk through the installation and the benefits of replacing old sensors with modern digital smart fuel sensors. Done correctly, they yield more accurate and reliable fuel quantity measurements.

Preventing That ‘Sinking’ Feeling - CiES Fuel Quantity Gauges

Aero-News Network - Maria Morrison, Scott Philiben

At AirVenture 2021 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Aero-News Correspondent Maria Morrison talked with CiES Inc. President Scott Philiben about their fuel monitoring systems for small aircraft. Working with industry partner Cirrus to revamp the fuel reading accuracy, CiES was able to create a safer, more modern fuel quantity sender suited to nearly all general aviation aircraft, available as OEM equipment, or under a Retrofit STC.

CiES fuel senders meets new regulations for power, ensuring no electric parts operate within the fuel tank. With a mean time to failure over 60,000 hours, 23,000 units in operation, and half a million hours of safe operation on record, CiES has found their stride.

Accident Case Study: Faulty Assumptions

AOPA Air Safety Institute

In the early morning light on April 22, 2019, the pilot of a Beechcraft Baron 58 preflights his aircraft at West Houston Airport in Texas, before he heads to the terminal to greet his five passengers. The flight will take just over one hour. But the pilot’s mistaken beliefs about existing onboard fuel will prove disastrous and clinch the flight’s outcome. Join the AOPA Air Safety Institute as we follow the Baron’s flight and learn how an unfortunate chain of events ultimately led to tragedy.

CiES Senders and Aerospace Logic Fuel Gauges


You don't have to fly in the mountains with full fuel or more fuel than needed anymore. Weight affects plane performance especially when taking density altitude into consideration. Flying the backcountry and some challenging strips, calculating weight is a priority. Before, I used to carry too much fuel. I didn't know in a reliable way how much fuel I had. CiES fuel senders are a direct replacement for your old fuel senders and super easy to install. Combined with Aerospace Logic digital fuel gauges, now you can know exactly how much fuel is in your plane.
