According to Light Plane Maintenance staff: A frequent reader question we receive is: Why does my engine seem to lack the power it once had? We can't tell you exactly what's wrong, but we can get you pointed in the right direction, and that begins with a systematic approach.
We can also tell you that one of the most common and hard to troubleshoot engine complaints is that of low power or low static rpm. Complaints on this subject were once so numerous on the Lycoming O‑235 series that Lycoming published an entire service instruction on the subject (S.I. 1388C).
StandardAero Business Aviation’s Houston MRO facility recently completed a record turn-around time milestone by completing three simultaneous TFE731 engine Core Zone Inspections (CZIs) for a Falcon 900 corporate operator — all in under 15 days — through the company’s FASTLANE™ service program. The CZIs took place while the company also concurrently performed required airframe Owner Controlled Inspection Program (OCIP). As a result of the expedited engine maintenance services, the operator was able to minimize aircraft downtime costs, avoid the use of rental engine assets and return to service immediately.

On July 15, 2016, President Barack Obama signed into law H.R. 636, the FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act of 2016. The Act extends the authorization of the Federal Aviation Administration's programs and taxes to fund those programs through September 30, 2017, at current funding levels. The Act also includes new and amended provisions related to integrating commercial small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) into the National Airspace System. This alert highlights the provisions of the Act related to safety, security, and drones.

The Coulson Air Tankers Martin Mars is back at its home base in British Columbia after being damaged in an accident at Airventure 2016. CEO Wayne Coulson told AVweb the aircraft flew from Lake Winnebago to Port Alberni with temporary repairs to holes in the hull. The plane was immediately pulled to dry land on dollies after landing at its base on Sproat Lake, near Port Alberni on Vancouver Island. "We actually pulled one of the patches off on takeoff," said Coulson.
In 2012, AAR moved into what had been an abandoned hangar that had not had a formal tenant since 2005 — the year Northwest Airlines filed for bankruptcy protection. Mark Ketterer, Vice President of Operations for the Duluth facility, retired from Northwest in 2009, started a small business in the Twin Cities, but then joined AAR when the facility opened.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources plans to proceed with rulemaking to allow seaplane landings in the coming months on Buckeye Lake, Indian Lake, Long Lake, and Salt Fork Reservoir, and even more in the future.

The pilot of a Glasair Sportsman GS-2 was temporarily blinded after his aircraft took a direct hit from a wedge-tailed eagle at 5,500 feet. Wedge-tailed eagles typically weigh between seven and eight pounds. The incident, reported by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, serves as another reminder of the substantial damage and adverse effects to an aircraft's performance and handling qualities that can result from a bird strike.
