Search for Engine ADs

If you’re looking to search exclusively for Engine ADs, it’s very simple.

From the Dashboard, go to the left panel and click on AD & TCD Search. That will open a list.

Next, Click on Engine AD & TCD:

Once in the Search screen, type the model digits in to the Model field.  (We suggest leaving the Manufacturer field empty).  Click Search.

You’ll see a Results list appear below (you might have to scroll down to see it). From there you can type into the Filter box to narrow down your search.

Once you’ve found your Engine Model, click the View ADs List (_) link.

If you’re thinking about the Engine ADs within an AD Report, open the report, and click on “Select Engine (Single/Left Engine)”.

Select the engine from the list, or add your own engine.  The ADs assigned to that Engine will be added to your AD Report.  Scroll down to view them.

If it’s a twin, click on “Select Engine (Right Engine)” for the next one, to repeat the process.  Scroll down to view the new Engine ADs you just added.

You can spot the Engine ADs within your report by looking for this symbol:

Champion Slick Magnetos

A most recent popular topic has been (Champion) Slick Magnetos.

Q:  Is there an AD requiring a 500 hour overhaul?

A:  No.  Most shops “require” one, imposed by their own standards, and those of the manufacturer.  There is no AD requiring a 500-hour overhaul on Slick magnetos.

Q:  Is there any documentation to reference the overhaul?

A:  Yes.  Champion has issued 2 Service Bulletins:  SB1-15 and SB 1-15A.

SB1-15 makes reference to a 500-hour time-in-service warranty period, however SB1-15A makes no reference to the 500 hours.  Be sure to read both documents slowly and carefully.

Q:  Why doesn’t Zook Aviation include this SB in the AD Toolbox?

A:  Every service document (Bulletin, Letter, Alert, etc) must be directly AD-Referenced for us to include it on our site.  Since there is no AD for the 500-hour overhaul, we have no method to attach the Service Bulletin.  So, we’ve included it here on our blog for your convenience.
