Save money on your next Annual Inspections and legally perform preventive maintenance on your aircraft.
Reduce the cost of your next Annual on your aircraft and learn how to perform the preventive maintenance items you’re allowed to do according to FAA CFR Title 14, Chapter 1, Part 43 appendix A paragraph C, provided it does not involve complex assembly operations.
Under FAR 43.13 (a) mechanics, repairmen and pilots are all held to the same standards when performing maintenance. The owner/operator will need to follow the same guidelines as mechanics and repairmen as explained in FAR 65.83. This allows the owner/operator to perform preventative maintenance tasks as long as they have been supervised by a licensed A&P at least once.
Don't think just because you hold a pilots certificate and the FAR's state that a certificated pilot may perform preventative maintenance, that you do not need any instruction or supervision to perform that maintenance for the first time. If in doubt call your local FSDO.
We provide all the tools needed to perform preventative maintenance, open inspection panels, remove cowlings, remove interior and gain access to landing gear to allow for an annual/100hr inspection to be performed. You will be supervised by a licensed A&P while performing these tasks and will receive a maintenance logbook showing all the work you have performed under supervision. As you perform those tasks one of our licensed A&P’s will sign you off in your log book and you will receive a certificate showing your achievement. This will legally allow you, the owner/operator to perform these same tasks with confidence, without future supervision and without paying the $75.00-$90.00 per hour shop rates.
We offer this service to owner/operators who want to reduce maintenance costs and learn more about their aircraft. This class is FREE to owner/operators who have their next annual inspection done by us. Call us to learn about our requirments for this class.
