My question is really specifically about a lycoming engine in an enstrom airframe. I have been told by a UK instructor that after 12 years they can no longer rent or train in the machine.

I googled and found this which agreed with this back in 2009

I'm not sure how to find out for sure! I'm trying to decide how important this is to me, and when I come to sell the machine once I'm done: and how much this factor should impact the price.

On a personal level I'm also pondering whether a 25 year old helicopter with original engine is a good thing or not!
