What We Do for You
Bolt it on and Test!
AvTorque services are built around proven wireless torque measurement technology from TECAT Performance Systems. Our core services utilize TECAT's technology installed on propeller extensions from Saber Manufacturing. We offer testing services with these TECAT-enabled extensions at our location in Ann Arbor, MI, or we can come to you. Our services always begin with a consultation to understand your testing needs and goals. Below is a quick overview of our core test services.
1. Install & Remove Propeller Extension
We contract with a local mechanic - or use your own - to install and remove the propeller extension.
2. Ground Test and/or Flight Test
We will tie down your aircraft and test run the engine on the ground. You may also test fly your aircraft if you have an experimental aircraft that can safely fly with the extension.
3. Report Data
We can provide a data acquisition system, or we can integrate to your system. We highly recommend our data acquisition partner 51Aero for the best in on-aircraft data analysis. We will provide a you with a report of your engine data with enough resolution to see each cylinder event. Advanced analysis options are also available.
