The AeroSuperBatics Wingwalkers team exclusively uses and highly recommends AeroShell products.
We operate Boeing Stearman aircraft in two distinct roles: formation flying in air displays and to fly members of the public on experience days. Our aircraft and their engines operate at all extremes of the performance regime using high, medium and low power. They undertake short air display and public flights, and longer transit flights.
High-performance engine oil is extremely important to us which is why we choose to use AeroShell products.
We require an engine oil to go the distance between oil changes without having to worry about it. The oil needs to be reliable and to maintain its oil pressure under all conditions.
The quality of AeroShell piston engine oil is clear when we dismantle our engines for overhaul. Even after more than 1,000 operating hours over several years, the engines’ internals are clean with no sludge or corrosion, which is exactly what we want to see. This makes our life easier, as we know that the oil has done its job. The internal engine cleanliness means that we do not have to spend hours scraping residue off surfaces or checking for hidden damage, as we can clearly see all the components.
For years, the air display industry used diesel fuel or oil to create smoke trails in the sky by injecting it directly into aircraft exhaust systems. We wanted a better solution for health and environmental reasons. AeroShell Smoke Oil has revolutionised the way we operate. During a typical air display, we may use up to 30 litres of smoke oil per aircraft. We are safe in the knowledge that it is better for the environment and our aircraft crews. It is easy to store and transport, which makes our lives a whole lot easier too.
We place absolute trust in AeroShell oils, no question.
