THIS SEMINAR HAS BEEN POSTPONED. We do appologize, but today's seminar has been cancelled. We will announce when the rescheduled date is. Thank you.


It began in 1845 as the Demorest Manufacturing Company producing sewing machines and bicycles in Williamsport, PA.  Becoming Lycoming Foundry and Machine Company in 1907, Lycoming developed automobile engines in a market driven by the needs of a nation at war. Then inspired by Charles Lindberg’s trans-Atlantic flight, Lycoming began developing aviation aircraft engines. Starting in 1929 aviation would never be the same. The first Lycoming R-680, a 9-cylinder 200 hp piston-driven radial engine left the assembly line and established a new standard in general aviation. their piston engines continue to evolve today as they develop advanced technologies to remain the power behind general aviation aircraft.

Join Brian Costello,  Lycoming’s  Western Regional Sales Manager as he will discuss Lycoming’s history and current events, the Engine model ‘Decoder’, and tips for efficient Lycoming engine management including leaning, mag drops and oil level topics as well as engine operation myths vs facts. He will then open the session with a  discussion for your questions or other topics you would like to know.

Brian is based in Lynden WA and offers a lifetime experience in general aviation.

He has worked in General Aviation full time in maintenance, modification, and flight test and development roles since 1980 and has been with Lycoming since 1996  as a Lycoming Field Service Engineer then promoted to Regional Manager in early 2014.

He holds  FAA A&P,  Commercial Pilot and CFI certificates with SEL, SES and MEL ratings, and has owned 11 GA aircraft since 1974.
