Learn How to Fly Your Engine at Twin Commander University

Can you safely use less than 100 percent engine RPM on takeoff? Does your engine suffer from turbine blade creep? When and how many blades should you spin the props after engine shutdown, and why? Do you check the settings on the GPU before doing an assisted start and, if so, what are the required GPU power minimums?

The Honeywell TPE331 is a high-performance, fuel-efficient engine that is relatively simple to operate, but like any complex piece of machinery, there’s a lot going on and therefore a lot to know. Helmuth Eggeling will help you gain that knowledge.

Eggeling is Honeywell’s long-time Pilot Advisor for the TPE331, and the author of the popular “Flying the Engine” series in Twin Commander’s Flight Levels magazine. He will be back by popular demand as a featured speaker at the Twin Commander University April 25-27 at the Scottsdale, Arizona, Marriott at McDowell Mountains.

Eggeling will be presenting his full program for the first time in six years, touching on more than 40 TPE331 operational issues ranging from engine preflight, Bendix and Woodward sensors, and control lever travel to GPU specifications, hot starts, and the power assurance chart. If you’ve heard “Professor” Eggeling at a previous University, you know he is the source for greater understanding of the theory and operation of the TPE331.
