Your engine is designed for the cold. Like aircraft that fly at sub-zero, high-altitude temperatures, engines are also built to handle cold weather operations. Harsh, icy conditions can cause some difficulties for aircraft operators. Prepare the engine for cold can help.
Trend monitoring that’s built right into your engine allows you to have a conversation with your aircraft and its powerplant. Powerful new diagnostics, prognostics and health management (DPHM) tools are making your engine health monitoring even easier.
