Crew Resource Management: How To Do It Right
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Prof. H. Paul Shuch


Two heads may be better than one, but the same does not necessarily apply to two pilots. In this FAA Safety Team WINGS webinar, Prof. H. Paul Shuch will review two case studies. In the first, two pilots worked perfectly together to prevent a disaster. In the second example, two pilots worked against each other, toward a less favorable outcome. Lessons learned have implications for crewed operations, flight instruction, and even drone missions.

Emergency Notification Systems
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Phil Lightstone


The key to surviving an aviation accident, is the quick communication to the search and rescue network. Many pilots believe that Emergency Locating Transmitters can not be counted on when minutes and hours count. There are many other electronic devices which can add notification options and supplement an ELT signal. Learn about a variety of affordable technologies that could one day help save your life. You’ll hear from aviation journalist Phil Lightstone, who will provide the facts about the technologies, cutting through the jargon and three letter acronyms to help you make an informed decision. Phil will also discuss the future of ELTs, including Space Based ADS-B ELTs.

Chapter Roster Management Application

Charlie Becker


Director of Chapters Charlie Becker provides a demo on the use of the new chapter roster management system. The online tool will make it easier and more convenient to track chapter membership.

Is Hangaring Worth It?
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch


Let's face it, hangaring an aircraft is a lot more expensive than tying it down outdoors. Is it worth the extra cost? Or is it cheaper just to repaint the aircraft more often? Maintenance expert Mike Busch recently found himself evicted from his hangar for nearly a month during an airport repaving project, and this started him thinking seriously about the various benefits of hangaring. In this webinar, Mike discusses his conclusions about the subject.


7 p.m. CST

Vans RV Maintenance Gotchas
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Vic Syracuse


Vic Syracuse will help educate builders and non-builders on the various common problems across RV aircraft that he sees as a DAR, prebuy inspector, and maintenance shop owner. The presentation will educate and motivate attendees to go take a close look at their airplanes. Vic is a designated airworthiness representative, and has built 11 airplanes, and is chairman of the EAA Homebuilt Aircraft Council.

IAC - Where We've Been and Where We're Going!

Robert Armstrong


Join International Aerobatic Club President Robert Armstrong as he takes a look back at IAC activities in 2019, the core purposes of the club, and how its programs can benefit every pilot. He will wrap up the presentation with IAC's plans for 2020 when the club will be celebrating its 50th anniversary at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

What You Need to Know About Airframe Icing
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Scott Dennstaedt


Whether you’re flying during the warm or cold season, it’s critical for pilots to understand the factors associated with airframe icing, especially when flying under instrument flight rules (IFR). Icing is a complex topic and demands a challenging dialogue. Rules of thumb that you may have been taught during your primary training can be dangerous and often replace real weather analysis that is paramount to minimizing your exposure to airframe icing. In this webinar, we will shed some light on how clouds form and how they can become a serious icing hazard to pilots. This includes a discussion on the factors associated with airframe icing and presents the latest analysis tools and techniques that pilots can incorporate to gain the most utility from their aircraft throughout the year without compromising safety.


7 p.m. CST

AOG! Dealing With Breakdowns Away From Home
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch


It's every aircraft owner's worst nightmare, an aircraft mechanical problem that occurs while on a trip far away from home base. This is always stressful. You're stuck somewhere you don't want to be, dependent on shops and mechanics you don't know or trust, and generally far outside your comfort zone. Maintenance expert Mike Busch and his colleagues have guided clients through thousands of these situations. From this experience Mike has developed three simple rules for ensuring the best possible outcome. In this webinar, Mike illustrates these rules by taking you through a number of real-life aircraft on ground situations and how they were resolved.


7 p.m. CST
