TBO 5000
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

In 2011, a 14-member Midwest flying club needed to decide what to do about its 1997 Cessna 172R whose Lycoming IO-360 engine had reached its 2,000-hour TBO. The club turned to its maintenance officer for advice, and he turned to Mike Busch's company Savvy Aviation. Thus began a collaboration that resulted in the Skyhawk's engine continuing in service for another decade until it reached the ripe old age of 5,000 hours, saving the club about $60,000. In this webinar, Mike tells the story of how this was accomplished and talks about why every engine deserves the chance to continue in service "until its time comes."
