SPARK PLUGS

Champion Aerospace Aviation Spark Plugs are the preferred ignition spark plug for reciprocating engines. Advanced-engineered Champion Aerospace spark plugs, designed for the critical difference in performance, are far beyond the ordinary. Champion Aerospace spark plugs stand up to high temperatures, pressures, and lead deposits with performance that’s second to none. When you’re up in the air, count on quality Champion spark plugs.

For even higher performance engines, choose longer-lasting Iridium “S” spark plugs. Longer lasting than platinum spark plugs, Iridium “S” plugs resist lead attack and provide better scavenging than standard platinum plug designs. Iridium “S” offers exceptional performance, even under the most demanding conditions.

A major benefit this design offers is a quick turnaround during a forced emergency outage.

The Champion Difference:
  • Known and proven quality
  • Commitment to technology
  • Advanced Engineering
  • Applications for virtually every aviation reciprocating/piston engine
  • Sales, Technical and Customer Services available

IGNITION HARNESS

The aircraft ignition harness carries an electrical current from the aircraft magneto to the spark plugs. An aircraft ignition harness is shielded to support and protect the wires from damage and to act as a conductor for stray magnetic fields. This in turn will minimize electrical interference with sensitive electrical equipment on the aircraft.

FAA-PMA approved Slick Harnesses by Champion are built to handle the maximum spark energy produced while delivering more energy than is required by the spark plugs – even during emergency full-power engine operation. Using anything less could result in more than a 50% reduction of radio sensitivity in commonly used communication frequencies, as tested by Champion. Features such as a heavy-gauge contact spring provide more contact area and force inside the spark plug, while the flexibility of the coiled center conductor reduces fatigue and breakage resulting from repeated temperature cycling and vibration.

Champion Ignition Leads have a polymer coating to resist heat and are engineered for high-temperature environments, which is common in reciprocating engines.

TOOLS

When the job has to be done, we always say, do it right. Doing it right takes more than desire, it takes good set up tools. These tools are designed to do a specific function and help make the removal and replacement process easier and less time consuming. Aircraft engine repairs are some of the most critical and technical repairs in the world of piston engines, and the right tools are as important as experience.

To ensure that our aviation technician customers have access to the right tools for all ignition repair projects, Champion Aerospace has partnered with Kell-Strom Tools to offer you the most comprehensive collection of tools specifically designed and engineered to work on aircraft engine ignition systems.

IGNITION SYSTEMS

Champion Aerospace is a global leading manufacturer of aero, marine and industrial ignition systems for turbine engine powered applications. With more than 300 different igniter designs, 150 lead designs, and more than 50 exciter designs, Champion’s ignition system products are specified as original equipment on products from CFM International, General Electric, Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Rolls-Royce, Solar, Siemens, Sundstrand, Teledyne, Turbomeca, Volvo, Westinghouse, and Williams International. Champion Aerospace also produces ignition systems for global industrial and marine based endusers, including land and marine power plants; oil, gas, and coal furnaces; oil rig operations; and pumping stations. Champion can provide Industry Certification compliant ignition system hardware for hazardous environment requirements (i.e. CSA, CE, ATEX etc…).

There are three components of a turbine engine ignition system: the exciter, the ignition lead, and the igniter. The exciter takes input power from the aircraft electrical system, steps up the voltage, stores the energy and switches a high voltage output signal through the ignition lead to the igniter. The igniter sparks once its gap is ionized and the field between the center electrode and igniter shell breaks down. Champion’s ignition systems are optimized to reduce to total cost of ownership for the end user. Many of its exciters incorporate solid state switching technology to extend the on engine life of the exciter and to provide the ideal electrical waveform to assure reliable engine starting. Champion’s ignition leads, where possible, are matched to its exciters and igniters to minimize line losses within the system. They offer higher delivered energy than similarly constructed competitive brands, with less flashover and greater electrical shielding. The igniter designs benefit from over 100 years of spark plug and igniter design and manufacturing experience. The result is the longest lasting, most reliable igniter designs in the turbine engine industry.

Champion Aerospace offers full ignition systems for the following notable engine programs: PWC: PT6, PW150, PW206/207, PW307A/B, PW308C/C+, APS2300, APS3250, PW814/815
