Oil analysis is useful to determine if a bearing is kinda thinking about getting ready to fail.

Because helicopters are essentially thousands of parts flying in close formation, oil analysis is done at regular intervals as a preventive action.

Oil analysis is phenomenal, especially tracking results on individual aircraft over time. Full spectrum: engines, transmissions, hydraulics.

For $30 bucks, however, I'd do it just because it would be interesting to see the results.
