Mooney owners will be able to able to choose from among nearly
50 Authorized Service Centers to upgrade their engines to the more
powerful, more efficient IO-390-A3A6.

best-operated service centers all over the world," says Michael
Everhart, Lycoming director of Distribution Management &
Customer Service. "We are absolutely confident that their skill and
capabilities will provide Mooney owners the kind of customer
service and support Lycoming owners have come to expect."

equipment and facility requirements, maintain required staff
training levels, meet or exceed required levels of quality and
