Lycoming Pricing Deal Extended
A deal Lycoming had offered through Aug. 31 has been extended through Dec. 4, 2009, and it means that buyers can purchase a zero-time rebuilt engine for the price of a factory overhaul -- but there is a catch. To take advantage of the deal, buyers must return a Lycoming new or rebuilt engine that has never been overhauled. "We recognize that many owners may be nervous about the economy and so they are putting off new purchases in favor of overhauls," said Lycoming Vice President of Marketing and Sales Todd Stoner. Lycoming says its factory-rebuilt engines are built to the same limits as new engines and come with trimmings like a zero-time logbook and two-year warranty. The company hopes the program will help it retain customers "by upgrading their overhaul service to something much more valuable," said Stoner. Price differences between an overhaul and zero-time rebuild translate to savings of about $3,000 on most engines.
Lycoming encourages interested customers to check the company Web site to make sure they qualify. The company also offers a table comparing new and factory rebuilt prices.
