original concept of the Lycoming Flyer has not changed since
the first issue was published in 1964. Approximately 85% of the
prepared text deals with technical information related to Lycoming
engines, and the remaining 15% covers general newsworthy items.
Some of the articles published are based on information contained
in Service Bulletins, Service Instructions, and Service Letters;
other articles are taken from actual field test data carried on
by Lycoming personnel. Furthermore, the Lycoming factory is a central
collecting agency on its aircraft engines in the field. Experiences
and information from all over the world provide feedback that is
recorded and analyzed. We share this information with our readers
in the Lycoming Flyer Key Reprints.
In the event a reader perceives a conflict between the content
of these articles and the content of the current manuals, service
bulletins or service instructions, the latter items govern. The
service bulletins and parts of the manuals are FAA approved; these
articles are not.
