Our advanced engine shop with experienced EASA Part 145-authorised engineers are the hub of our service-overhauling and repairing light aircraft engines such as Lycoming, TCM Teledyne Continental, Franklin and others for UK and international customers. The engine shop is fully equipped with sophisticated inspection tools and systems, including spraywash and ultrasonic cleaning tanks, and test bed facilities.
High-quality people with continuity and experience are the basis for our confidence in Norvic quality and turnaround timings. Even our procedures are designed from the outset with quality and speed in mind-including a prompt, comprehensive engine collection and delivery service covering the UK, Europe, Middle East and worldwide.
Can’t wait 4-6 weeks to get your engine back? We keep our own range of engines fully overhauled and ready for Fast Exchange, which can cut turnaround down to a couple of weeks. If your engine is out of stock our Exchange To Order service may have what you need. The only condition is that your return core engine must be in good condition for us to overhaul.
With smart procedures and quality control systems, we’re dedicated to providing the UK’s fastest turnaround in our field. These are not empty words. We have the experience and in-house capability to quote fast-but-realistic completion dates, coupled with the clever ideas set out here that shave days and weeks off turnaround times.
Our collection and delivery facilities, close links with the on-airport maintenance shop, and good relationships with suppliers also contribute to a smooth operation.
Shock load repair kits
You know your engine must come out and have mandatory parts replaced, as specified by the engine manufacturer. But Norvic has an innovative way to cut your downtime, because we stock sets of parts we call ‘shock load kits’ for various engines. For commercial customers, this means in many cases that we can turn your engine around in a maximum of 2 weeks instead of 4.
Your parts are ready
If we know your engine is coming, we can pre-order parts for you. This way, they can be ready and waiting when your engine arrives for overhaul, which means a big saving in overall turnaround time.
We are dedicated to providing the fastest turnaround in our field in the UK, and this is one of the ways in which we work to minimise your aircraft’s time on the ground.
Second to none, our Fast Exchange service will take your expired core and provide an overhauled exchange in the shortest time possible. Minimise ground time with Norvic fast exchange.

With our broad set of skills under one roof, we can cut the time it takes to rebuild and repair your engine for optimal performance and reliability. It also gives us the flexibility to meet your particular requirements.
As part of your engine overhaul or repair, we can overhaul injectors, carburettors, magnetos, CSUs, and cylinders (including non-destructive testing-NDT), each in its own facility within the engine shop. We also have the capability to repair and overhaul crankcases and crankshafts, and have CAA approval for TIG welding of aluminium-including crankcases and cylinder heads-all to Norvic’s high standards.
Complementing our core people skills, we regularly invest in the latest technology to minimise costs and hassle for our customers and further enhance the quality and reliability of our engines. Recent developments include our MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspection) crack test technology and new dynamometer test bed display system.
In-house Froude GB4 water brake dynamometer test rig
After an engine has received a complete overhaul, we make our pass-off tests with the engine mounted on our advanced Froude GB4 water brake dynamometer, which enables the engine output to be determined in terms of brake power.
This is an important part of our process of checking and recording all parameters in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.
See the CAA publication CAP562 for a full description of the test requirements:

Lycoming & TCM Continental engine overhauls adhere to strict quality procedures
All engines are subject to our strict procedures ensuring a high quality overhaul or repair that will return years of dependable flight under the best warranty in the business. Lower your cost of ownership by maximising TBO with a Norvic overhaul.
Each incoming engine is allocated an individual cart to eliminate the risk of parts cross-contamination and ensure a smooth transit through our rigorously monitored programme of works. Our engineers conduct a full inventory and engine strip to identify parts needing repair, replacement or overhaul, then carry out exhaustive tests and upgrades to the highest professional standards. Replacement parts are then installed and the engine sent for testing on our own test-bed facility. The final step is a series of in-depth checks to ensure the engine is flawless and ready for delivery. See our quality control procedures in detail.
The Norvic team also handles experimental engines, for overhaul, repair, assembly or sale.
Various options are available, including the well-proven ECI and your own, purpose-built Norvic experimental engine. Please check out our Experimental page for more information.
