Turbine Products

IGNITERS

Champion turbine igniters are a product of the Champion Aerospace commitment to the highest standards of quality and technology – a commitment that has made Champion the #1 igniter choice of engine manufacturers, maintenance technicians, and pilots around the world.

Champion continually seeks out emerging materials (ceramics, super alloys and precious metals) and technologies to deliver the highest capable performing igniter in today’s demanding commercial and military engine applications. These efforts are driven to ensure the longest life and highest reliability possible to provide the lowest cost of ownership as compared to competitive offerings.

With more than 300 different engine designs, these igniters are specified as original equipment on products from Honeywell, General Electric, CFM International, Pratt & Whitney, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Williams International, Siemens, Rolls-Royce, and Turbomeca.

EXCITERS

Champion Aerospace manufactures a broad range of high-performance inductive or capacitive discharge ignition exciters in configurable, customer driven designs. Champion offers traditional spark gap technology in legacy products, but has transitioned to pioneering designs solely utilizing solid-state technology incorporating our patented multi-voltage “Spider Switch” or new (patent pending) Solid State Spark Gap (S3G) design to maximize reliability, efficiency and capability while minimizing weight. The S3G is a newly introduced concept that is virtually a “plug and play” device into legacy or new applications requiring radiation-free assemblies. Champion offers repair, recertification, and overhaul of exciters through our FAA certified repair station.

IGNITION LEADS

Champion Aerospace designs and manufactures a full range of aerospace ignition leads for turbine engine applications. New ignition leads from Champion Aerospace are available for a wide range of turbine engines, from small turbine to the largest turbofan engines.
Champion supplies the turbine aftermarket with top-quality, cost-effective replacement leads, and offers a lead overhaul program, which is a unique maintenance alternative. Regular, preventive maintenance helps avoid costly, unscheduled maintenance caused by worn turbine ignition lead components. Ignition leads often do not appear worn, but have damaged shielding, insulation, or termination connection component that can lead to imminent failure. Whether you buy new FAA-PMA approved replacement leads or choose to overhaul your current leads, you are assured of quality, prompt delivery and maximum performance/reliability.

Piston Products

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.

OIL FILTERS

In 1974, the first Champion-brand spin-on filter was introduced. Today, Champion Aerospace distributes Champion-brand spin-on oil filters and element filters that incorporate a semi-depth filter media.

Champion Aerospace Oil Filters combine the advantages of both surface and depth-type filtration to enhance high efficiency, controlled porosity, water resistance, and resistance to impulse and flow fatigue. Champion brand oil filters are known to keep dirt and harmful particles from damaging your engine. Plus, no other filters on the market have Champion’s unique resin-impregnated, full-pleat design that offers 8.2 feet of layered protection for your engine.

IGNITION HARNESSES

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.
