Abstract : This memorandum records details of the results of an Engine Performance Monitoring Trial carried out on the Hercules Aircraft of the RAAF during February-July 1977. The engine monitoring procedures were developed as an aid to the Flight Engineer and the Maintenance Section, so that the performance of the Allison T56 engines could be monitored more closely than is currently specified in RAAF Squadron operating procedures, thus enabling engine operation and maintenance action to be carried out more effectively. The trial was conducted on all Hercules aircraft operated by Nos. 36 and 37 Squadrons, and the initial analysis of results was carried out by personnel from No. 486 Squadron, who are responsible for maintenance of these aircrafts. The memorandum is divided into two sections: (a) Operating Instructions for Aircrew and Maintenance Personnel, and (b) Results of Trial. Details of the rationale behind the monitoring procedures and overall conclusions on the trial are given in Reference 1, Part B.
