Chapter Leadership Webinars for Canada
By Jeff Seaborn, Chair, EAA Canada Council
December 2020 – Some of you may have heard of, or even attended, one of EAA's Chapter Leadership weekends. We are happy to give you some early information that we are planning to implement a Canadianized version via Zoom sometime early in the New Year. We are actively working on the content and should have more information soon.
The purpose of these efforts is to share some best practices learned from the thousand or so EAA chapters all over the world. You may like to start thinking about what you believe are your strengths and weaknesses as a chapter so that the webinars can be as meaningful as possible in encouraging growth and success in your chapter.
Additionally we're also planning some other Canadian content webinars. Mark these dates in your calendar.
Webinar 1: February 24 — Owner in Command: Things I wish I knew before I knew them.
A detailed look at the maintenance decisions and responsibilities of owning a certified or amateur-built aircraft in Canada. We will cover CARs, maintenance schedules, Service Bulletins, Airworthiness Directives, and various manufacturers service instructions in order to determine when and how to inspect and maintain our aircraft.
Webinar 2: March 24 — SNAGGED! Dealing with defects safely and legally.
A review of where, when, and how to record aircraft defects and how to determine if they affect the airworthiness of small private aircraft in Canada. Together we will cover some typical problem scenarios and go through where to look and how to determine if a snag grounds the aircraft and how to keep flying legally if it doesn't.
