Both Lycoming and Continental make great engines.  Decades of service have proven that the basic engines are very reliable.  Unfortunately occasional problems do occur.  Generally the most common problem we see are normally relatively minor and can be fixed in the field.  For example a failed magneto.   If these problems occur when you are away from your maintenance base they can become a major headache.

If you need assistance within South Australia, Western Victoria or Western New South South Wales,  please give us a call as we can help you with any engine problems that you have.
