Many wonder what really happens behind the scenes when someone takes their turbine engine in for service.
Many business, agricultural, and industrial aircraft operators make regular trips to their service provider for scheduled and unscheduled service, but few have seen what actually occurs in the shop, and why it is important to the safety and reliability of their aircraft.
Turbines Inc has created a YouTube channel that includes inspections procedures and other procedures performed during overhaul/repair.
From their channel description: "Our channel is for people who operate, fly, and love PT6 engines. We post videos about the maintenance process, about things that can go right (or wrong) with your engine, and occasional cartoons about the industry and the people in it. We welcome questions, comments, likes and subscribers."
The videos are not slick or highly produced, they authentically show Turbines craftsmen going about their usual tasks and taking a moment to explain what they’re doing.
People who love engines, and who watch “How It’s Made” videos will enjoy these. Anyone who works with these engines in any capacity will find them educational and enlightening.
