Franklin and Lycoming cases all finished and ready for builds. Bottom right case was a case that a competitor did. The bearing journal sizes were all .003 over maximum which caused low oil pressure issues.

You're really becoming the Franklin king, aren't you?

Are there particular areas that are focused on?

We are constantly improving our work flow at Airworx. We have put all of our NDT equipment in an efficient production line. We hold level II NDT certification for FPI and MPI inspections. The first question you should ask your potential engine shop “Do you do in house NDT”?

I am so jealous of the setup in your shop

As we work on our repair station we also have to evolve in the way we process NDT work. We used to use small parts wash tanks with our FPI testing but we now have the bonafide Zyglo testing system. This will allow us to process parts faster with even more accuracy.Image attachment

Any of our customers be interested in doing a cross country flight from Allensville PA to Brewton Al to deliver a puppy? ... See MoreSee Less

Throw in a Franklin 220, and I’m in! haha, but seriously I could do the first half if that helps KRVL to somewhere around Asheville, Charlotte 🤷🏻‍♂️

You could do a puppy relay down the eastern seaboard 😉

If I was already flying.... YES!

When?

We would like to update everyone on our status of becoming a part 145 FAA certificated repair station. We had a meeting today with our FAA representatives and have commenced the certification process. We hope to have our certification within 90 days. We will have Franklin, Lycoming, Continental, as well as specialized processes of NDT on our operating certificated. Once completed we will be able to issue 8130-3 forms with the work that leaves our shop. This is all about providing another level of quality products that we do for our customers. Semper Fi.

Congratulations! Great work! Keep em FLYING

Great news. Keep it up Chris

Good news! Congratulations.

Finally, after 6 years I actually have an office. More organization equals more productivity. This will be my think take as we continue our sustained growth at Airworx along with getting our certified repair station.

I remember watching you on TV flying for the “Dust up” series ... very cool to see what hard work has done for you over the years.

So how much does a Coke run yah in the break room?

Hmm. I think a gear is a little out of place.

Comment on Facebook

Must have been same place that worked worked on my engine way back when....the little gear looks familiar...

Currently that's not a gear, it's a grinder!

Dang. I hate it when that happens.

No. Same problem you had. Look at the crankshaft small gear location.

Did the gear split and that is 1/2 of it showing there?

Must be the same guy who ground my now two-piece crankshaft

What am I looking for here.

PSA
Airworx new operating procedure on Franklin Engine overhauls.

In order to provide the best possible service and affordability on Franklin overhauls, Airworx will be providing our customers with a Parts required for assembly listing upon overhaul assessment. This will allow our customers to source the parts they require from their vendor of choice and have them sent to Airworx for their build. This need arises due to non standard pricing on parts for Franklin engines which doesn’t allow us to provide a hard overhaul quote.

Sincerely,
Chris Collum

With this list would Airworx also provide their cost for these parts for comparison shopping?

Makes sense to me!
