Accident Investigators Visit EAA for Experimental Aircraft Training
Owners group given chance to improve bid
EAA’s Joe Norris points out many of the unique construction techniques often found in experimental aircraft. The Investigators were in Oshkosh to attend a three-day course covering experimental aircraft.
April 1, 2010 — Investigators from several government agencies including Canada visited EAA this week for a three-day course on experimental, light-sport aircraft, and warbirds. EAA Vice President of Industry and Regulatory Affairs Earl Lawrence and EAA Homebuilders Community Manager Joe Norris provided the training to the investigators who will be encountering noncertified aircraft in their work.
“Part of our mission at EAA is to provide to these investigators key information and insights about the aircraft our members fly,” Lawrence said. “Having that extra level of knowledge in their work will help to improve the overall safety of the amateur-built aircraft sector.”
Longtime EAAers Eric Tucker with Kodiak Research and Greg Erickson of Lycoming, who helped start the EAA Flight Advisor program, also gave presentations to the attendees.
