On a Short Leash – Maintenance Costs
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit and AMT credit. .

Mike Busch

The very best maintenance shops do thorough inspections and meticulous maintenance but can also run up shockingly high invoices unless the aircraft owner is actively engaged and keeps the shop on a short leash. Maintenance guru Mike Busch A&P/IA demonstrates exactly how this should be done, using a real-life example of an owner who appropriately declined two-thirds of the shop's proposed repairs, thereby reducing a $25,000 work order to a $5,000 invoice. You'll learn what kinds of things can be reasonably and prudently declined or deferred, and what things you should always approve.
