Default Behotec JB220 service recommendations?

My JB220 is coming up on 16.5hrs run time, I have some questions about when i should service it.

I see that ultimate-jet sell and service this turbine, I sent an email and never got a reply. Are they still in business? or is there another service center I should contact?

Thanks ...

Contact Peter at Altecare. My 220 is on a 50 hour service cycle. Double check the service cycle of your engine. If your engine isnít under warranty, you might consider only sending it in if there is an issue.

Thanks, lots of people have reached out including ultimate-jets, Peter from Altecare. Looks like my turbine and still many hours left until servicing (300 flights or between 40-50hrs running time)

Andy - Thanks I'll be in touch soon ( bought your sister turbine ACEx 170) so trying that out in my Eurofighter

Hi F9

Call me whenever. I just answered your other post. We work on anything that spins, literally, but we do have experience with Behotec. I do like the German machine work. Hey, If you can get 50 hours out of the bearings, then do it...but don't hesitate to call us. We turn around simple balance jobs in a few hours of getting the engine in. We also have a new balancer that enables us to balance below .1mg.
