Rank #1: 016 – Should I Run My Engine Past TBO?.
A Lycoming O-235-C2C engine mounted in an American Aviation AA-1 Yankee light aircraft. (From Wikipedia.org) March 4, 2016 What is the highest recommended TBO number of operating hours for Continental or Lycoming engines… and which model is it? TBO times… are they a requirement or not? Listen to today’s episode to find out. When discussing “Hot Topics” like this, just remember, have a lively discussion, but also be kind to your fellow aviators. In today’s episode, we talk about: What is TBO, anyway? Continental Motors SIL 98-9c (TBO times.) Lycoming SI 1009 (TBO times.) Some possible scenarios. IF you are considering running past TBO, here are some things you might do well to consider: Perform meticulous maintenance. (Listen to find out more.) Use a different shop or inspector every few years (better chance of catching squawks.) Talk to your insurance company. (It IS legal to fly past TBO under Part 91.) Educate yourself and keep on learning! Finally, I give 5 true statements regarding running past TBO. So… which engine model has the highest recommended TBO hours? And the winner is… Lycoming O-235 series (except for the F, G, and J models; these are 2000 hours due to not having the higher strength pistons, like the other 0-235 models. Let me know if you have any good TBO stories to share with the rest of us Have a great week!
Rank #2: 019 – Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Airplane Engines! …but Please, Take it Easy on Them!.
April 1, 2016 When it comes to starting airplane engines, there are lots of opinions. It might be worth taking a new look at your technique. Whatever your procedure is, your engine should be treated with as much care as possible. How about asking these 4 questions: Why not try starting your airplane engine with the throttle all the way back? It makes for a much gentler start. Which looks more professional… a nice gentle and smooth start, or an abrupt start with an immediate roar to 1800 RPM? That one’s easy! Will your engine run smoothly with the throttle all the way back? It’s a good idea to check this occasionally. Does your engine need any idle adjustment to make it run properly? In today’s episode, I talk about my favorite procedures for starting both a fuel injected engine, and a carbureted engine. Here is the old, FAA training video that I mentioned in today’s podcast. And for me, it’s one more reason why it’s a good idea to get in the habit of starting your airplane engine with the throttle all the way back, in the closed position. In this case, if the throttle had been all the way back, this incident would likely have been avoided. Last week, I mentioned finding an engine thru stud loose, and the cylinder base nut broken… well, it turns out the engine needs a tear-down inspection due to not knowing how long the engine was run like that and needing to verify no internal engine damage has happened. Here is that engine:

In these situations, something is clearly wrong, and pilots must speak up. But the situation is more tricky when you see a pilot head off to do something you know is risky, but which they might be successful at. Still you should speak up.
