A cost-effective service to enhance your aviation maintenance practices and provide confidence in the health of your engine.
Aviation Oil Analysis (AOA) by ALS Tribology Division brings you a state-of-the-art oil analysis program designed specifically for aircraft owners. Oil analysis is an early warning system that reduces downtime, lowers maintenance costs, and helps you spot troubling issues before they become serious problems.
AOA advanced kits include return postage and additional analysis for your turbine or piston engine to determine the condition of the oil and presence of contaminants such as water and dust. Please note, for any location outside of the United States the "Return Postage" option will not provide postage for return to the laboratory. Please obtain sufficient postage via your preferred domestic shipping option.
A small vial, mailing bag, and information form are furnished with the order. Upon receipt at the laboratory in Phoenix, AZ, the oil sample is analyzed and a full report, including statistical analysis and interpretation, is forwarded within 24 hours and posted for viewing online.
14 Elements: Silicon, Aluminum, Iron, Copper, Nickel, Chromium, Silver, Lead, Tin, Magnesium, Boron, Calcium, Phosphorus and Zinc, Viscosity, Water, PQI (Particle Quantifier Index)

Ive been using them for every oil change and have been very happy. The prepaid package is convenient and Ive been getting my results through email at a very reasonable amount of time. As an example I sent my last oil change in on Aug 7th and received results via email on Aug 13th. Now this will obviously be effected by where you live and how far it has to be shipped. The information presented is clear and the written recommendations help to track the progress of your engine.
Each kit includes one bottle.
No, the advanced kit only comes in the with postage version.
