Tricks for Aircraft Engine Replacement
When it comes to aircraft maintenance and overhauls, one of the most intricate procedures is engine replacement. It can also be one of the most expensive, especially if something goes wrong during the overhaul itself, or afterwards during operations. Therefore, here are some key things to keep in mind if you’re considering an engine replacement.
First of all, make sure that you actually need a replacement to begin with. Reasons for considering a replacement can range from wanting increased power, to having what you think is a completely broken, un-repairable engine. But before you commit, make sure that it’s your only option! You want to be absolutely certain that engine replacement is your only choice before pursuing it.
Next, find a reputable replacement service. Not all facilities are equipped to remove and replace an engine completely, and the old fears of mark-ups and being exploited are also prevalent. Always make sure to find a trustworthy, experienced and certified overhaul center that can help you and clearly explain just what exactly they are doing to your aircraft.
You’ll have to decide on a replacement engine obviously, and this means doing your homework. Not all engines work on all aircraft, and it’s important that you find the right combination of power, performance, and reliability when choosing yours. There are also issues of weight, balance, and mountings that need to be addressed as well; it won’t do you any good to buy a new engine if it won’t even fit on your aircraft, after all.
Lastly, once the replacement is completed, you’ll want to pay close attention to it while in operation to make sure everything is running properly. If something sounds off, or your instruments are reporting abnormal readings, get it checked as soon as possible by a professional.
