Abstract

The article presents the role of lubricating oils for aviation applications, along with their classification, and discusses the key physicochemical properties. It characterises engine, transmission gear, hydraulic and instrumentation oils and their impact on a device operational reliability. It also points out the requirements for these products in relation to the operating conditions and the chemical composition of a product.
