Engine Test Cell

We are currently in the final stages of the approval of our own engine test cell.

Overhauled engines are tested on the aircraft right now, but soon we will be ready to use our own test facility.

 

On the instrumentpanel we have a "RACEPAK" engine datalogger. This is an engine analyzer with amazing features. We can see life data during the engine run, it will give warnings when minimum or maximum limits are reached and it can store data up to two hours per run.

 

We check the following parameters: 

- oil temperature

- oil pressure

- fuel pressure

- fuel flow

- cylinder temperature on each cylinder

- exhaust gas temperature on each cylinder

- manifold pressure

- air temperature

- tachometer (RPM)

 

How it all started..

Roof and side wall are installed...

 Engine mountplate (firewall)
