Engine Ground Run Up
Operating and testing engines and associated aircraft systems is a
critical duty of the licensed engineer; the difference between a normal
start and a hot start could be 1 second and this small parameter will
easily set back the airline over 1,000,000 USD in overhauling costs.
training is specifically designed to enable participants to gain the
necessary experience and knowledge to perform established ground engine
runs and taxiing procedures safely, competently and confidently.
courses are divided into theory and practical sections. The first part
includes a refresher on the selected aircraft/engine combination,
relevant systems and interfaces, safety precautions, operation limits
as well as detailed instructions on setting up the flight deck prior
engine runs, normal and non-normal start-up and shut-down procedures.
practical is accomplished using approved full flight simulators only,
were delegates are requested to complete safely and proficiently normal
and non-normal start-up and shut-down procedures; they are also exposed
to a variety of engine and aircraft systems failures during idle and
high power engine runs, making this one of the most comprehensive
training in the industry.
Group and Requisites: This course is aimed at licenced
engineers and type rated personnel involved directly with ground engine
runs and taxiing.
Initial course is 2 days (12 hours); recurrent course is 6 hours.
