Engine break-in testing
Sky Power can carry out break-in testing for your UAV engines on our in-house engine test stands according to your specifications. This process provides you with a ready-to-fly engine that can be used immediately in your UAS or provided to customers for instant deployment, saving preparation time and increasing convenience.
Endurance and specification testing
Sky Power conducts engine tests according to your specifications, simulating each individual usage parameter and extensively documenting each test. Our precise instruments allow us to accurately measure fuel consumption, engine parameters, and exhaust-gas temperatures.
We can also undertake endurance tests, during which your engines are subjected to between 50 and 200 hours of uninterrupted loading on our in-house engine test stands, as well as climate tests. After each test, the engines are disassembled and examined, and full test results are made available to you.
Our complete test capabilities include:
- General performance measurement of combustion engines
- Thrust and power measurement
- Exhaust analysis
- Engine indexing
- Endurance testing
- Blower, water, and oil pump analysis
- Cylinder-head measurement
- Load-change calculation
- EMC measurements
- Climate and temperature tests.
Overhaul and maintenance
Individual maintenance steps for each engine that can be completed by the operator are described in detail in the operating manual, along with maintenance intervals. We can provide a spare parts pack for each engine that will allow you to conduct these tasks yourself at any time.
Larger maintenance tasks can be completed by Sky Power at our facility in Germany – please contact our Service Department for more information.
After reaching the maximum time between overhaul (TBO), which can vary depending upon operating environment and maintenance regularity, Sky Power can overhaul the engine at our facility.
Following a crash or other serious incident, engines must be repaired by Sky Power’s Service Team – please contact us for an initial determination of the feasibility of repair before sending in the engine. Detailed engine tests are carried out as part of the repair work, in order to document the engine’s operational readiness.
