NEW EAA DVD SAVES YOU
TIME AND MONEY ON AIRCRAFT PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Certificated aircraft owners benefit
from latest in EAA’s famed how-to video series
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH,
Wisconsin — (April 13, 2017) — A new how-to video from the Experimental
Aircraft Association gives certificated aircraft owners a better understanding
of preventive maintenance and ways to save money by personally completing some
of the tasks.
Aircraft Ownership: Understanding
Owner Preventive Maintenance
is a multi-part video series combined on one DVD. It shows certificated
aircraft owners how to legally maintain an aircraft in accordance with FAA
preventive maintenance regulations.
“There are many tasks that a
certificated aircraft owner can do that are completely legal under FAA
regulations and will save money,” said Charlie Becker, EAA’s director of
chapters, communities and homebuilt community manager. “This DVD will help
those aircraft owners plan maintenance and have confidence in what they can do
themselves and when to go to the next level.”
More than four hours of video are
organized in easy-to-follow categories, so a viewer can find exactly what is
needed. Included are extensive discussions of the legal and technical
requirements, plus dozens of hands-on demonstrations with step-by-step guidance
on basic preventive maintenance projects.
The demonstrations include such areas
· Safety wire and cotter pin replacement
· Safety belts and seat parts
· Landing and position lights
· Spark plugs and batteries
· Fuel and oil screens and filters
The video segments are hosted by Dick
and Bob Koehler, EAA SportAir Workshop instructors, who each hold Airframe and
Powerplant (A&P) mechanic certificates with Inspection Authorization (IA)
privileges. Their vast knowledge and teaching skill provide the knowledge and
techniques needed to perform basic preventive maintenance procedures.
The DVD is available at EAA.org/shop for $36.95, with special discounts
for EAA members.
