8:30 AM - 9:45 AM

Location: Forum Stage 7

Presenter: Mike Busch

Why do planes cost so much more than cars? Why do they require so much more maintenance than cars do? Why do aircraft engines need to be overhauled every 2,000 hours while car engines don't? Are these even fair comparisons, or are they apples and oranges? Mike Busch A&P/IA CFII -- who has owned both airplanes and automobiles for more than 50 years -- explores why planes and cars are so different. Join him for an interesting discussion.
