How it Works
Rising operating costs are a primary concern for every aircraft
owner. Unexpected maintenance and unscheduled downtime are just two of many
issues that contribute to rising costs. But their impact can be significant.
The ongoing recorded history of your engine's performance provided
by trend monitoring provides a powerful tool to help reduce these rising
Cost Reduction - Engine trend monitoring and analysis impacts direct operating
cost. Early detection of minor problems that otherwise may have gone undetected
can be addressed before they escalate into a major problem that creates a
costly unscheduled maintenance event.
Enhanced Safety - Trend monitoring is a proactive and continuous process of
identifying potential problems before they evolve into a safety of flight
Maintenance Planning - Unscheduled downtime is more than an inconvenience-it's
often accompanied by unforeseen expense. Trend monitoring results can be used
to maximize the effectiveness of your shop visits.
Value Retention - Engine trend monitoring data and records are proven to be an
asset when selling an aircraft. Trend monitoring data provides a tangible
representation of your engine's condition.
Extension Requirement - Trend monitoring typically is an integral component in
obtaining hot section and TBO extensions (on-condition). Applicability will
vary based on engine type.
