It is our pleasure to announce that Aircraft Diesel Engine, Austro Engine AE300 has received a further Life Time extension to benefit all operators.
The new TBO of both the engine and gear is now 1500h. Austro Engine AE300 does not operate on clutch. Thus, Two Mass Flywheel requires only a field check, and exchange is on condition, with service interval of 100h. In addition to that, The Oil consumption of the Aircraft Diesel engine is less than 2 Liters per 100h (1-Liter/100h is Standard).
The operation of the Aircraft Diesel Engines offer remarkable benefits to the operating costs, aircraft grounding time and safety. The efforts of Austro Engine to get further increase of Life Times on engine and components is an ongoing process, as it is working hand in hand with EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) to meet the upmost safety.
