Rush to Judgment
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

An aircraft owner notices that his oil pressure has been trending downward in recent months. He brings his plane to a large, well-known, factory-authorized service center to have the oil pressure adjusted. They tell him that his engine needs to be replaced or overhauled to the tune of $50,000, and that trying to adjust the oil pressure up would be "like putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound." The engine is about mid-TBO and the owner is understandably in a state of shock. Mike Busch A&P/IA relates how one of his Savvy Aviation colleagues came to the rescue and got the plane out of jail and the owner airborne (with good oil pressure) in a matter of a few hours.
