Engine Condition Trend Monitoring – 1 Day

Introduction –

During normal operation all engines will experience rubbing, thermal stress, mechanical stress, dirt accumulation, foreign object ingestion and other events which will eventually result in a measurable decrease in efficiency.

By continuously monitoring the evolution of key parameters that can translate engine condition, deterioration in engine performance can be detected as well as early signs of engine faults and thus appropriate measures can be undertaken.

ECM is the continuous monitoring of key engine parameter to detect impending failures and assess engine performance. ECM uses standard engine and aircraft instrumentation for monitoring.
No additional measurement equipment is needed.

For each Engine a baseline model that represents the expected behaviour of a given engine, The difference over time between measured data and the baseline model is called the parameter Delta.

Monitoring the evolution of these deltas is what gives knowledge about the current state of an engine and allows an estimation of how its performance has deteriorated with each flight cycle.

Benefits of Developing an ECM Program

– Detect potential failures to avoid/reduce secondary damages
– Improve fleet management (removal and spare engine planning)
– Reduce maintenance cost thanks to early detection
– Lower unscheduled downtime cost
– Optimize on-wing time
– Better estimate shop visit cost
– Improve customize workscoping
– Increase knowledge about engine on-wing behavior
– Optimize shop capacity planning
– ECM operational & financial benefits
– Minimized unscheduled downtime and optimized on-wing times
– Supports early line maintenance decisions to avoid secondary damages and AOG’s
– Supports performance prediction and optimum aircraft operational planning
– Allows for better engine removal planning and optimized spare engine management
– Allows for optimized off-wing maintenance planning
– Increased fuel efficiency and overall fuel consumption thanks optimized core engine cleaning
– Lower maintenance cost

What Makes SAS Engine Condition Trend Monitoring – 2 Days overview different? –

Because our courses are written by people who have lived through the regulations, from the introduction in the early 00’s. EASA Part M is an essential regulation related to the management of the aircraft.

​SAS provides training support and guidance across the entire CAMO Spectrum

At Sofema Aviation Services our focus is on accepting that compliance with EASA Regulations is in fact minimum compliance. Interpreting the regulations in a way which enables the development and optimization of our business is where we should see opportunity to drive efficiency and cost saving.
