Helicopter Engine Management
Engine management just became easier and maintenance just became less expensive. The ETM Engine Trend Monitor from Shadin Avionics gives you the data you need, and much more. Shadin Avionics’ ETM also provides comprehensive real-time aircraft performance monitoring, fuel management and navigation data to the pilot, while recording maintenance data for later retrieval with its unique Datakey.
Automatic Recording and Retrieval
Flight data is displayed, recorded and can be reviewed after flight. The removable Datakey™ also lets you download all aircraft and engine information directly to your Computerized Maintenance Management System from your PC. This data provides precise tracking and reporting of flight time, engine hours, performance variations and exceedences that will allow you to accurately anticipate maintenance and operational problems sooner. Reliable information continuously reported from the aircraft eliminates human error and provides data to substantiate H.S.I. and T.B.O. extensions.
Shadin Avionics ETM Value
Shadin Avionics ETM gives you the tool you need to maintain and track the performance of turboprop engines to manufacturer’s specifications. Not only will this payoff in reduced maintenance costs, but full performance documentation will return increased resale value. Best of all, Shadin Avionics ETM is more affordable than conventional monitors that lack its many advanced features.
Engine Trend Monitoring and Data Collection
Shadin Avionics ETM monitors and records all critical engine and airframe trends and provides precision-calibrated back-up instrumentation with real-time display. The ETM features automatic cycle counting for Lycoming LTS 101, Pratt & Whitney PT6A and Allison 250 series engines.
Shadin Avionics ETM computes current flight information for more efficient aircraft operation and decision making. By turning the knob to “Airdata,” pilots may select from a host of valuable flight information.
