A recognised world leader in the development of aviation products for over 95 years, Continental’s aircraft piston engine leadership stretches from the A-70 radial engine to the engines for the Voyager aircraft.
Continental Cylinder Overhaul
If cylinder compressions are falling, the useful life of your engine can be extended by overhauling one, two or all of your cylinders, to allow you to run the engine to it’s full recommended TBO.
Airtime can overhaul your TCM cylinders, with all work carried out in Airtime’s EASA Part 145 approved engine workshop.
Airtime also has a range of overhauled cylinders in stock for immediate dispatch to reduce your downtime.
As part of your full engine overhaul, Airtime can supply new TCM, new PMA or Airtime overhauled cylinders.
Zero timed engine overhauls
This strictly speaking isn’t an ‘overhaul’ – we take your run-out engine “core” into our factory and you get back an engine that is built to new engine standards.
Some parts are re-used, such as crankshafts and cases, but the top end parts are generally replaced with new parts. Cylinders and magnetos are always replaced with new parts unless you request otherwise.
As we are doing the work in our approved facilities, we certify the engine as “zero time” and it counts as a brand new engine as far as the logbook times are concerned.
Carefully disassembling and cleaning each part, documented to be correct for your engine model, we run a full inspection of your engine using a variety of state-of-the-art technologies.
Your engine is assembled and balanced by our experienced craftsmen using CAA approved techniques and built to exceed new tolerances.
After painting your engine with a highly durable, anticorrosive protective finish, we install the engine into your aircraft, or on our portable test cell, and run it through its full RPM cycle while performing a comprehensive series of diagnostic tests to ensure that your engine is running flawlessly prior to returning your engine to service.
This is not the end of our service to you – we remain on call to provide you with any necessary technical services you or your mechanic may require whilst getting your aircraft back into service.
