Spend even a few minutes comparing the operation of an avgas-powered engine to a diesel — also known as a compression-ignition engine or a jet-A power plant — and a number of diesel benefits jump right out. Diesel engines don't have spark plugs, and demand no magnetos. Jet-A-burning piston engines are water-cooled too, meaning they're less susceptible to overheating on the ground or during climb-out.
