Product Description

‘Mike Busch on Engines’ presents a detailed examination of piston aircraft engines, rooted in the decades of experience and pioneering philosophy of Mike Busch, a renowned A&P/IA and the 2008 “National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year.” This book begins with the fundamentals, including the history and theory of four-stroke spark-ignition engines, and progresses to advanced topics such as modern engine leaning techniques and condition monitoring tools.


Mike Busch dispels common myths, arguing that the risk of engine failure decreases, not increases, with the engine’s age. He advocates for a 21st-century approach to engine maintenance and overhaul, emphasizing on-condition rather than by-the-book overhauls dictated by arbitrary TBOs. The book is a treasure trove of wisdom on troubleshooting common issues, extending engine life, and embracing modern tools for engine health assessment.
