At Airtime Aviation we believe good engine maintenance is essential to aircraft safety.

Our engine shop offers a full range of facilities, from routine servicing to full zero hours overhaul. We stock a full selection of overhauled cylinders and, of course, we can overhaul your old ones if required.

We are also approved to overhaul engine components including, magnetos, starters, and alternators.

'The quality of our engines speak for themselves’.

We take our responsibility to provide you with the safest, most reliable engine very seriously. We gladly accept this responsibility and stand behind every engine that leaves our shop providing a complete warranty of x year/s.



Lycoming piston aircraft engines have earned an unparalleled reputation for reliability and durability, which is why Lycoming engines are one of our engines of choice.

Currently powering more than half the world's general aviation fleet, Lycoming produces horizontally opposed, air cooled four, six and eight-cylinder aircraft engines with power ranging from 100 to 400 HP.


Lycoming Cylinder Overhaul

If cylinder compressions are falling, the useful life of your engine can be extended by overhauling one, two or all of your cylinders, to allow you to run the engine to it’s full recommended TBO.

Airtime can overhaul your Lycoming cylinders, with all work carried out in Airtime’s EASA Part 145 approved engine workshop.

Airtime also has a range of overhauled cylinders in stock for immediate dispatch to reduce your downtime - including TSIO-540, O-360 and O-235 series cylinders.

As part of your full engine overhaul, Airtime can supply new Lycoming, new PMA or Airtime overhauled cylinders.


A recognised world leader in the development of aviation products for over 95 years, Continental’s aircraft piston engine leadership stretches from the A-70 radial engine to the engines for the Voyager aircraft.


Continental Cylinder Overhaul

If cylinder compressions are falling, the useful life of your engine can be extended by overhauling one, two or all of your cylinders, to allow you to run the engine to it’s full recommended TBO.

Airtime can overhaul your TCM cylinders, with all work carried out in Airtime’s EASA Part 145 approved engine workshop.

Airtime also has a range of overhauled cylinders in stock for immediate dispatch to reduce your downtime.

As part of your full engine overhaul, Airtime can supply new TCM, new PMA or Airtime overhauled cylinders.


Zero timed engine overhauls

This strictly speaking isn't an ‘overhaul’ – we take your run-out engine "core" into our factory and you get back an engine that is built to new engine standards.

Some parts are re-used, such as crankshafts and cases, but the top end parts are generally replaced with new parts. Cylinders and magnetos are always replaced with new parts unless you request otherwise.

As we are doing the work in our approved facilities, we certify the engine as "zero time" and it counts as a brand new engine as far as the logbook times are concerned.

Carefully disassembling and cleaning each part, documented to be correct for your engine model, we run a full inspection of your engine using a variety of state-of-the-art technologies.

Your engine is assembled and balanced by our experienced craftsmen using CAA approved techniques and built to exceed new tolerances.

After painting your engine with a highly durable, anticorrosive protective finish, we install the engine into your aircraft, or on our portable test cell, and run it through its full RPM cycle while performing a comprehensive series of diagnostic tests to ensure that your engine is running flawlessly prior to returning your engine to service.

This is not the end of our service to you - we remain on call to provide you with any necessary technical services you or your mechanic may require whilst getting your aircraft back into service.


Starter, Alternator and Magneto overhauls

Credibility, trust, and performance are the cornerstones of our commitment to customers.

Building on more than many years of overhaul experience, we deliver industry-leading turnaround times and trustworthy guarantees.

Our specialist electrical workshop specialises in starter, alternator and magneto overhauls and repairs.


Visit or phone the engine shop direct on01202 591 113 or +44 1202 591 113 if you are calling internationally. Or email us and we will endeavour to provide you with the engine and service information you require.

Whatever your aviation needs our highly skilled staff are ready and waiting to help you.
