Engine Test Cell
Diagnostically equipped test cell

Each engine is fully tested in our diagnostically equipped test cell and operated through its full range to confirm that it meets or exceeds the manufacture’s parameters set forth for the engine.


We are one of the few shops that test cell run the turbocharged engines with the turbocharger installed, thus verifying full power output. All pressures, temperatures and operational characteristics are verified so that when you receive your engine it is ready for installation with only minimal adjustments required when mounted into your airframe.


All Mandatory Service Bulletins (MSB) and Airworthiness Directives (AD) are complied with at the time of overhaul.


Our work is accomplished utilizing the most current applicable Overhaul Manual revision and criteria.
