MzeroA Flight Training wrapped up their series with Champion Aerospace by sharing information about Slick Magnetos. If you are interested in how magnetos work or maintenance of the magneto, the video will answer many questions you might have. QAA is the only factory authorized service center for all Slick Magnetos. We are available for any technical support you may need that is not addressed in the video. Be sure to see our selection of Slick Magnetos if you need any parts for your aircraft.
Want more information about the maintenance of your spark plugs? Many pilots don't know the best practices for maintenance of their spark plugs. Watch the below video produced by Champion Aerospace that is full of helpful information. Be sure to check out our spark plug selection here if you need to have your parts replaced.
A common issue that pilots run into is they have no or low output from their aircraft alternator. Often the issue is not with the alternator itself but with another component. The below video provides an effective guide to troubleshooting your alternator to verify if the issue is with the alternator or possible located in a different part.
Turbocharging Systems While turbocharging systems are used in many applications from automotive to marine, they were first developed for aviation –with experimental installations beginning in the 1920’s. The function of an aircraft turbocharging system is to maintain desired manifold pressure at a given throttle setting, regardless of varying conditions or ambient air pressure. This is obtained by a turbocharging system, generally consisting of a turbocharger, a bypass valve and one or more controllers. As a fail-safe feature, many applications also include a pressure relief valve that can avert a total control failure or cold start overboost. A turbocharger operates by taking engine exhaust gas and diverting it through a turbine. Exhaust gas pressure and heat energy extracted from the gas will cause the turbine wheel to rotate the compressor wheel. Rotation of the compressor wheel takes ambient air, draws it into the compressor housing where it is compressed…

A Slick magneto is a specific type of aircraft magneto manufactured by Champion Aerospace. There are many different models of Slick magnetos, so understanding the differences between each and how they relate to your aircraft needs is important. Almost every Slick magneto is sold new, as overhauls to this kind of aircraft magneto are rare. Quality Aircraft Accessories is the only Slick Magneto Factory Authorized repair center. We offer the entire line of Champion Aerospace aircraft magnetos, including Slick magnetos, as well as other models such as the Bendix magneto and dual magnetos. Visit the Aircraft Magnetos page of our online store by clicking here to find the slick magneto you need, or find out more about slick magnetos by clicking here, dual magnetos by clicking here and Bendix magnetos by clicking here.

A Bendix magneto is a specific type of aircraft magneto manufactured by Teledyne. There are multiple models of Bendix magnetos, and unlike the Slick magneto, they can be infinitely overhauled. As a result, the Bendix magneto is more often overhauled than bought as new, allowing for efficient, cost-effective use. What Are Some Top Recommended Bendix Magneto Products? There are many kinds of aircraft magnetos out there, and knowing which brands and models you can trust will keep you one step ahead. The Bendix Magneto by Teledyne is one such aircraft magneto due to its efficiency and reliability. Here are some of our top recommended Bendix magneto products: Bendix Magneto (S6RSC-25) – Part#: 10-500556-1 Bendix Magneto (S6LSC-25) – Part#: 10-500556-3 Bendix Magneto Pressurized (S6RSC-25P) – Part#: 10-500556-101 These aircraft magnetos have been tried and tested throughout the years, proving to be products worthy of their…
A dual magneto is an aircraft magneto that incorporates a single drive source powering two magnetos. This makes for an arrangement in which the left and right magnetos are contained in a single housing and operated by a single magnet rotor and engine drive. A dual magneto is a convenient solution for most aircraft owners, as aircraft magnetos are almost always used in pairs, and dual magnetos contain just that. Quality Aircraft Accessories offers a great selection of dual magnetos as well as other reputable models such as the Slick magneto and Bendix magneto. Visit the dual magnetos page of our online store by clicking here to find the aircraft magneto you need, or find out more about aircraft magnetos by clicking here, Slick magnetos by clicking here, and Bendix magnetos by clicking here.
Here at Quality Aircraft Accessories, we specialize in aircraft magnetos and aircraft magneto service. We take pride in our wide breadth of knowledge surrounding aircraft parts and thought we'd share some of that expertise to provide a better understanding of just what an aircraft magneto is and how one works. An aircraft magneto is an engine driven electrical generator that uses permanent magnets and coils to produce high voltage to fire the aircraft spark plugs. Aircraft magnetos are used in piston aircraft engines and known for their simplicity and reliability. Often sold in pairs, or as a dual magneto, this compact device requires no external electrical source to operate. You can learn more about a dual magneto by clicking here. Here's how an aircraft magneto works. Aircraft piston engines are designed with two independent ignition systems. This is made up of two aircraft spark plugs per cylinder…
