TIME OF COMPLIANCE
As required during aircraft operations
The flight training environment makes an engine more susceptible to spark plug fouling, decreased efficiency, and excessive fuel consumption. Some of the flight training profiles that cause these conditions include over-priming, prolonged idling, a taxi at low engine speeds, and extended operation at full rich mixture.
