Regulations governing overhaul

Regulations Governing Overhaul

  • Time Before Overhaul ( TBO )

  • The manufacturer determines the recommended number of hours that an engine may be operated before it is overhauled

  • Each engine model has a different TBO and they range from around 600 to 2400 hours

  • All engines wear, build-up sludge, form deposits, crack, and parts fail that cause them to require overhaul

  • Privately owned aircraft (Part 91) may exceed TBO if the engine shows no signs of deteriorated performance

Regulations Governing Overhaul

  • Rebuilt is the term used to describe an engine that has been disassembled, inspected, repaired, reassembled, and tested utilizing new tolerances

  • Overhauled is the term to describe an engine that has been disassembled, inspected, repaired, reassembled, and tested utilizing serviceable tolerances

  • An engine equipped with an integral supercharger that has its case halves separated is a major repair and must be approved by an IA
