Engine expert Mike Busch A&P/IA and CFI teaches you how to lean your engine without fear. He explains how mixture affects CHT, EGT, horsepower, fuel economy, engine longevity, and other key engine parameters. He offers a minimal leaning checklist for student pilots and a LOP-made-simple routine for experienced ones. Finally, Mike reviews the powerplant management procedures he uses on his own airplane (a turbocharged twin) to take both engines to beyond 200% of TBO.
