In this work, the authors will try to determine, by means of techniques based on Artificial Intelligence, the actual possibilities of using spectrometric analysis, done periodically to the engine oil, as predictors of the condition of the engine. Some similar works have led to a simple linear regression model, but in the particular case of this work it is intended to evaluate if the specific environmental conditions of the region and the low use of aircrafts allow to discuss the convenience of making use of the same criterion or elaborating some specific variant.
