Aerospace Technologies revamps Factory Technical training It has been a long-established tradition for aviation engine manufacturers to provide technical factory training. In Europe, very few mechanics have gone through these classes, mainly because very few classes were offered locally. Having to travel to the USA for a weeklong training discouraged many maintenance operators, especially the smaller ones. In pursuit of being the first choice of general aviation power,

Maintenance operators encounter engines of various ages on a regular basis. This range of engines creates a challenge for them, as they need to be trained on the evolution of these engine models through the years. With many parts superseded and new technology introduced to these models, mechanics must understand what differences exist between revisions of the engine and how to maintain and tune these engines for safe operation at peak efficiency. This can only be achieved by acquiring the necessary knowledge from the source. And hence, the reason why

factory-installed engine on the Piper Pilot 100, the Pilot 100i and as an option on the Piper PA28 Archer III line. It is also available for Cessna 172 retrofits. As these aircraft encounter a brisk rate of adoption by flight schools and aero clubs, Continental® made sure that these engines are covered in the factory training. Factory training on these engines ensures maximum flight line availability in the field.
