In order for aircraft owners to get the most out of their
engines, it is essential to understand proper operation and
Many of the most common engine problems are preventable through
routine maintenance and can ensure an engine reaches its expected
T.B.O. (Time Between Overhaul) benchmark.
Prescribed maintenance procedures can be found in each engine's
respective manual, available online at

spark plug changes, oil changes, and periodical gearbox checks.
More thorough gearbox maintenance is necessary, however, if
aircraft owners choose to use aviation fuel versus the recommended
motorcycle fuel with gear additive.
