TBO 5000
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

In 2011, a 14-member Midwest flying club needed to decide what to do about its 1997 Cessna 172R whose Lycoming IO-360 engine had reached its 2,000-hour TBO. The club turned to its maintenance officer for advice, and he turned to Mike Busch's company Savvy Aviation. Thus began a collaboration that resulted in the Skyhawk's engine continuing in service for another decade until it reached the ripe old age of 5,000 hours, saving the club about $60,000. In this webinar, Mike tells the story of how this was accomplished and talks about why every engine deserves the chance to continue in service "until its time comes."

Disastrous Annual
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

In this webinar, maintenance expert Mike Busch A&P/IA tells the sad tale of a highly experienced aircraft owner who took a newly purchased airplane to a shop he'd never used before for the first annual inspection on his watch. The annual turned into a disaster that resulted in the airplane being unflyable for more than a year and a huge invoice far beyond the shop's estimate. The sad part is that all of this could have been prevented had the owner simply dealt with the shop in a more businesslike manner, something Mike explains in detail. This should be a cautionary tale for every aircraft owner.
