Aircraft Maintenance: Tips From Mechanics To Keep Your Airplane Safe

3 October 2023   Aircraft Maintenance

Keeping your airplane in top working condition is essential, which means you need to invest in regular aircraft maintenance. Routine maintenance ensures your aircraft is safe, operating properly, and helps detect and prevent any potential issues before they turn into larger and potentially dangerous problems. Our aircraft mechanics share their top tips to keep your airplane safe. 

 

Carefully Preflight Carb Heat 

If you’re flying an aircraft that has a carbureted engine you’ll add carb heat while you’re warming up your plane. Be sure that the temperature is rising slowly, and be sure the carb heat door closes properly. During the winter season, carb heat will clear out any ice that’s present. 

Power Adjustments 

Despite its size and seemingly hardy appearance, your aircraft engine is delicate and you should always handle it with care. This includes making gentle power adjustments instead of aggressively jamming the power in and out. Always use a firm, smooth hand when making power adjustments because this keeps your engine in optimal health and prevents dramatic changes in engine temperature. 

Consistent Oil Changes 

Just as you do with a car, your aircraft’s engine needs regular oil changes. Changing the oil consistently keeps your engine clean and running smoothly, and it can ensure your engine lasts as long as it should. Your oil change frequency will depend on the type of aircraft you have and how often you fly, but our mechanics can advise you.

If you love history then you’ll have plenty to do and see in Philadelphia, which is the first World Heritage City in the United States. Philadelphia is perfect for a day trip or a quick weekend trip to see the sights, including:

Block Island

Block Island is a beautiful island located 17 miles south of Rhode Island. It’s famous for its miles of beautiful public beaches, clear waters, dramatic bluffs, and its preserved natural beauty. Animal lovers will want to visit the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, where you can see migratory songbirds, and architecture enthusiasts will enjoy the island’s two lighthouses – one on the North end and one on the South end. If you’re craving a peaceful, scenic beach getaway where you can escape your everyday hustle and bustle, Block Island is an ideal destination for you. 

The Jersey Shore

The Jersey Shore has so much to offer for families, couples, and those who enjoy traveling solo, and you don’t need to wait until the summer to visit. Take a stroll down the two famous boardwalks, Ocean City Boardwalk and Atlantic City Boardwalk, then visit the Cape May Lighthouse. Cape May Beach and Wildwood Beach attract thousands of visitors a year, and we know you’ll enjoy the dozens of miles of beautiful coastline and soothing ocean waters.
