Blueprinting is a term commonly used in the automotive industry to designate an engine that has been built to very high standards. The question is, to whose standards is someone referring? The manufacturers have published service limits and new limits for parts. In the overhaul industry, the FAA only requires that an engine be built to service limits to be legally signed off for an overhaul. The FAA has no definition for blueprinting, so you have nothing more to rely on than the reputation of the facility and the people you choose to do your overhaul. We recommend a one-on-one interview with the engine assembler that will be building your engine for you. We highly recommend that you come and visit our facility and interview the machinists who perform these high quality procedures.
Depending of the model of your engine, it can take an average of two to three weeks if there are no unusual circumstances. Delays can occur in the event of supplier parts shortages or special repairs. If the customer can give us repair authorization in advance, it decreases delays considerably. After an engine is disassembled and inspected, we contact the owner to report the internal condition. The customer’s preferences on repairs after inspection will determine the time for any additional repairs. Often, customers like to come in and personally examine the condition of the engine at inspection stage. Exchange engines ordered in advance have no delay and can be shipped via truck or airline to anywhere in the world. For multiple orders of the same series engines, down time can be significantly decreased.
