A mechanic recently told me that he'd heard that the FAA is now going to require piston aircraft operated under FAR Part 135, to have their engines overhauled at TBO (or) 5 Calendar Years, which ever comes first. This is ludicrous! Has anyone heard, or know of anything about this, or is it a hoax? Apparently there was some concern over rust and internal corrosion build up with operators who aren't flying much.
