Aircraft Maintenance Tracker
Aircraft Maintenance Tracker
By Pilot Partner
Great tool for an Aircraft Owner, Flying Club or Flight School to keep track of the Maintenance and Inspection status of their aircraft. Using the Aircraft Setup wizard, you can enter all of the required information to get an accurate status of your aircraft in relation to the required inspections.
MX Tracker Overview
About the Aircraft Maintenance Tracker
With the Maintenance Tracker you can easily see how many days and/or flying hours are left before an inspection is due.
Pilot Partner will color code items Green, Yellow & Red.
- Red is Expired
- Yellow is 25% remaining or lower
- Green is above 25%
Meters is Pilot Partner’s way of allowing you to track the different tools you use to track flight time in an aircraft.
Single Engine Aircraft
Typically aircraft have either Tachometers or Hobbs meters. Most Single Engine aircraft have a Tach and a Hobbs (although some don’t have a hobbs). And Tach is used to determine when Maintenance is due and how many total flight hours your engine or air-frame have.
Multi Engine Aircraft
Most multi engine aircraft have a Hobbs Meter to track total time on the air-frame and a Tach to track time on each engine. But it is also common for a Multi-Engine aircraft to only have a Hobbs meter.
Either way you can program in what you have into your aircraft and track your Maintenance the way you want to.
The Inspection portion of the Maintenance Tracker is designed to track inspections such as: Annual Inspection, 100 Hour, Oil Change, ELT Test and Pitot Static Checks. But you are able to add any additional items that you want to track. Whether it is a recurring Airworthiness Directives, or other elective inspections, you can track it easily. Example Engine Oil Inspections can be calendar based, flight hour based or both. For example, most engine manufactures recommend you change your oil every 50 hours or 4 months. Pilot Partner will track your status along both timelines at the same time.
Equipment tracking is great for monitoring Time Between Overhauls (TBO) of your engine and other components in your aircraft. Pilot Partner will allow you to track the time on each of your cylinders so that there is never a mystery of how many hours are on which cylinder. This may help you decided between that next Top Overhaul or just replacing a single cylinder when you get a low compression check. Pilot Partner will help you track how old original equipment is and how much time and flight hours are on it it since last overhaul. For example, it is common to overhaul and engine instead of buying a new one. But after the same engine has been overhauled several times, you may want to consider an entirely new engine.
