BG Aerospace continues to help operators all over the globe with money saving tips and tricks to keep the cost low, but the value high!
Through our Engine Management program, BG Aerospace focuses on operations before, during, and even after overhaul. Preventative maintenance is a major focus and can sometimes be downplayed in the current busy market. We pride ourselves in helping connect operators with the support they need by leveraging our many years of industry related knowledge.
In keeping with our series of tips and tricks, today’s focus is on preventative maintenance.
- BG reminds operators to watch the FOD in their engine cowls as well as the ground.
- That turbine washes are as important as compressor washes.
- Fuel nozzles are done regularly and that if you have a GPU 15 ft away from the aircraft, we cannot recommend it highly enough... use it!
- Hung starts and high start temps destroy CT Blades.
BG Aerospace does offer a course on Preventative Maintenance by one of our specialized team members. This course is offered worldwide, and we can even provide you with a BG Aerospace certificate of accomplishment upon completion. If your hangar or airport is full of PT6 engine powered aircraft, then we highly recommend it. If you would like to sponsor a course, then contact us today to get a quote. These courses are a low-cost way to help you save money on future shop visits, while still keeping as much engine value as possible for when it comes time to resell.
Lowering your costs pre and post overhaul is our mission! Contact us today to learn more.
Have another great week and stay tuned for more industry relevant articles next week.
