Engine management and mixture control are common topics of conversation among Beech pilots. Faced with a universe of data and opinions, many pilots are uncertain precisely what to. That leads to concern or even fear of their engine.

You don’t have to live in fear of your engine. If you understand the basics of engine management, and realize that engine control isn’t as critical and all-consuming as some might say, you’ll replace your fear with confidence, and be able to focus on the total picture of flying your Beechcraft.
