How an Engine Monitor Kept Me from Pulling the Chute
The saga of an inflight engine failure, safe landing, the failure diagnostic process, and the resultant engine overhaul
Date and Time:
Monday, April 6, 2020, starting at 19:00 Pacific Daylight Time Download Calendar File
Rhon Williams
Brief Description:

A seemingly routine flight from TOA to SEZ required quick decisions when the oil pressure started dropping rapidly. After safely on the ground, a failure analysis was performed looking for the cause. Diagnostics led to an engine overhaul which is fully explained, and sample parts from the engine are shown.

Rhon Williams is a FAAST Representative and holds Commercial-SMEL, Helicopter, Glider, and CFI-AI ratings as well as A&P Mechanic.  He is co-owner of a Cirrus SR22.  He is an active home-builder having completed a plans-built Early Bird Jenny which first flew in December 2015.

Pilot airspace deviations continue to be a major risk in the national airspace system.  To reduce the chance that you might be involved in an airspace deviation incident, you are highly encouraged to take an on-line learning center course on www.faasafety.gov.  Or search the learning library for associated guidance on airspace incursions.  Remember, safe and prudent airmen have superior situational awareness, and have a plan to keep it that way.


Thanks!  A message from your local FAASTeam.
