Upcoming Webinars Schedule

Fueling VFT - Learning from Mistakes to Prevent a Tragedy | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, April 17, 7 p.m. CDT with Keith Clark

Everyday aircraft are fueled, and what happens during this time is the key to preventing a tragedy. Keith Clark from Phillips 66 Aviation discusses proper communication of aircraft fuel orders and strategies to ensure verification. Keith reviews examples of past mistakes and how to learn from these mistakes to prevent another aircraft misfueling.

Mr. Bearhawk’s Wild Ride: A Surprise Encounter With Extreme Turbulence | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Thursday, April 18, 7 p.m. CDT with Russ Erb and Karl Major

Russ Erb and Karl Major, retired USAF flight test pilots, discuss their encounter with an invisible mountain wave rotor, and their subsequent analysis of what happened. Includes a re-creation video depicting the sequence of events, and details of how the airplane was inspected for damage after the incident and thoughts on how this event could have been mitigated.

Four Ways to Save Fuel, Time, and Money with Better Flight Planning | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, April 24, 7 p.m. CDT with Andy Matthews

Andy Matthews, of iFlightPlanner, discusses four simple ways you can save fuel and fly faster every time you step in the cockpit using iFlightPlanner. EAA members receive special discounts of 20% plus on iFlightPlanner. Andy will review key features and how to use iFlightPlanner to the maximum benefit.

Borescope Initiative | Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT Credit

Wednesday, May 1, 7 p.m. CDT with Mike Busch

The borescope is one of the most important and versatile tools for inspecting GA aircraft, and is the gold standard for assessing cylinder condition in reciprocating aircraft engines. However, aircraft and engine manufacturers have provided no guidance on how to perform a proper cylinder borescope inspection, and A&P training doesn't cover it. In this webinar Mike Busch, A&P/IA, discusses what his company (Savvy Aviation) has done recently to fill this vacuum.

Slip Slidin' Away – All About Uncoordinated Flight | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, May 8, 7 p.m. CDT

We were all taught, from our very first lesson, to step on the ball and avoid uncoordinated flight. After all, slips and skids can lead to stalls and spins, can’t they? And then, three or four lessons later, we were taught how to slip. But why on earth would anyone want to do that? Doesn’t that lead to the dreaded stall/spin accident? In this FAA Safety Team WINGS award webinar, you will learn how to do forward and side slips, staying both uncoordinated and perfectly safe.

Solid Edge Synchronous and Ordered Modeling

Wednesday, May 22, 7 p.m. CDT with Doug Stainbrook

Doug Stainbrook with Siemens Solid Edge provides training on the use of the Siemens Solid Edge computer-aided design (CAD) program made available to EAA members by Siemens. The webinar will focus on the differences between Ordered (traditional history-based) modeling and Synchronous modeling offered in Solid Edge; moving Ordered models to Synchronous; hybrid modeling, combining ordered and synchronous features in the same model; creating dimensional formulas; and driving dimensions from the variable table and Excel. Learn how to take advantage of this powerful 3D modeling tool and create complex 3D models.

Building Your Dream Airport

Wednesday, May 29, 7 p.m. CDT with Gary Stevens

Considering a private airport, or wanting to learn more about your airport? This presentation covers the basics of airports, a comprehensive 101 discussion by Gary Stevens, former state and federal airport development and compliance inspector. This presentation will emphasize design, operations, construction, and alterations of privately-owned turf airports and review the approval process of FAA, state, and local zoning authorities. Additionally, it will review how to find additional resources to help your private airport.

Minimally Invasive | Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT

Wednesday, June 5, 7 p.m. CDT with Mike Busch

Medicine has enthusiastically adopted minimally invasive procedures. Instead of biopsies, we do ultrasounds and MRIs. Instead of open surgery, we use laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures. In this webinar, maintenance expert Mike Busch A&P/IA makes the case that we should also be using minimally invasive methods in the maintenance of our aircraft.

Rose Parakeet | Museum Webinar Series

Tuesday, June 11, 2024, 7 p.m. CDT with Chris Henry & Amelia Anderson

The little Rose Parakeet is a biplane with an interesting history as both a standard category aircraft as well as homebuilt. Join the museum team as we talk about our newest addition as well as take you along on what it takes to get an airplane shipped to the museum.

Zeppelin: The First Airliners

Wednesday, June 12, 2024, 7 p.m. CDT with John Mellberg

All about the airship. A historic overview of Zeppelins, the first airliners. Before the Wright brothers’ first flight, on July 2, 1900, the first Zeppelin, the LZ-1, carried several passengers aloft for a flight over Lake Konstanz, Germany. A rigid airship was also the first aircraft to carry passengers across the Atlantic Ocean, twice as fast as the steamship of the day. Join EAA Aviation Museum Docent John Mellberg as he recounts the fascinating history of Zeppelin airships.

Tips for Flying Into EAA AirVenture 2024 | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, June 19, 7 p.m. CDT with Fred Stadler

Learn all about the 2024 AirVenture NOTICE arrival procedures. EAA’s volunteer NOTICE Chairman, Fred Stadler, describes FAA required procedures and shares useful tips for reducing pilot workload when flying into Oshkosh for AirVenture 2024.

Ultralight/Homebuilt Rotorcraft Arrival Procedures - AirVenture 2024 | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, June 26, 2024, 7 p.m. CDT with Mark Spang

Flying into the ultralight/homebuilt rotorcraft grass runway at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 requires compliance with the FAA-issued NOTICE. Mark Spang will discuss the NOTICE arrival and departure procedures specific to the Fun Fly Zone grass runway on the south end of the airport used by ultralights/lightplanes and homebuilt rotorcraft.

Tale of Two Prebuys | Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT Credit

Tuesday, July 9, 2024, 7 p.m. CDT with Mike Busch

When buying a pre-owned aircraft, it's essential to conduct a thorough and independent prebuy examination. In this webinar, Mike Busch A&P/IA (whose company has managed thousands of prebuys) tells the real-life story of two prebuy examinations, one that was thorough and independent and the other that was, well, not so much. The outcomes for the buyers were very different, and there are important lessons to be learned here for anyone thinking about buying an aircraft.

CFIT - Avoiding Controlled Flight Into Terrain | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, July 10, 2024, 7 p.m. CDT with Prof. H. Paul Shuch

We tend to think of controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) as being caused by the pilot not paying attention. In fact, these altogether avoidable accidents can arise from many causes. In this FAA Safety Team WINGS award webinar, Prof. H. Paul Shuch will discuss how weather phenomena, mechanical failure, pilot fatigue, incapacity, or simple pilot error can all contribute to unplanned contact with terra firma, and what you can do to prevent it. Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.
