Introduction

There’s a lot of information out there about engine operation and management, and more and more there’s a lot of input available in the cockpit about what’s going on in the engine. The amount of data and opinions, and what you do with them, can be overwhelming. This presentation will help you understand what’s most important to know about the engine(s) in your Beechcraft Bonanza, Baron, Travel Air or Debonair, so you can sift through the talk, the myths and the data to eliminate any confusion and fears, and ensure you are operating your engine(s) efficiently and safely. 

Topics we’ll cover include: 

* Engine temperature management 

* The effects of mixture control on performance, economy and engine longevity 

* Lean of Peak (LOP) operation and its impact on engine life 

* Running past TBO, and “infant mortality” of new engines 

This webinar qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit and the ABS AVIATOR program. It will be archived online and included as part of the Beechcraft Pilot Skills Enhancement Program (“BPPP Recurrent”) on the American Bonanza Society website.
