Pushing Past TBO - Running your Rotax Engine "On Condition"
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Many of us are experienced with the ubiquitous Lycomings and Continentals, engines based upon 1930s designs.

These modern European designs defy our notion of time between overhauls. In this FAA WINGS and AMT Award webinar, Prof. H. Paul Shuch, a noted flight instructor and Rotax maintenance technician, tells you why you can forget everything you know about TBO and how you can keep your Rotax operational far longer than you expected.
