Cylinder Rescue
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

Way too many cylinder wind up getting pulled due to low compression, says Mike Busch A&P/IA. Many of them can be rescued without resorting to cylinder removal. Mike illustrates this by telling the story of a frustrated Piper Seneca owner who had already replaced seven cylinders and was now being told by his mechanic that two more needed to come off. With the help of Mike's team, both cylinders were rescued without removal--one by lapping the valve in place and the other by doing a solvent ring flush. Mike feels that cylinder removal should be the last resort after less-invasive methods have been tried.

ATC and You: Getting the Most Out of Flying in Controlled Airspace
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Bob Obma and Brad Wilco

 

There are many myths and assumptions regarding the services that pilots receive when they are in contact with ATC. Some pilots think controllers are providing more than they actually are while others don’t take advantage of all that controllers can do for them. Join air traffic controllers Bob Obma and Brad Wilco as they discuss the services that ATC provides and when. Participants in this webinar will be able to fly safer and more efficiently in and around controlled airspace.

Teardown Needed?
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

When metal is found in the oil filter, cam distress is noted after cylinder removal, or a foreign object is accidentally dropped into an aircraft engine, many A&Ps immediately conclude that a costly engine teardown, overhaul, or replacement is necessary. More often than not, it isn't. In this webinar, Mike Busch A&P/IA tells the story of three such aircraft engines (two Lycomings and a Continental) that were rescued from euthanasia under his guidance, and illustrates why mechanics shouldn't be spring-loaded to the teardown position.

Paul Shuch review several landmark accidents that will help you keep the greasy side down and the shiny side up, in this FAA Safety Team WINGS award-qualifying webinar.

Taming the Tailwheel Shimmy
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Will Fox

Wheel shimmy in aircraft landing gear is a problem that has been around as long as aircraft with wheels have been around. Even the space shuttle had to face the dreaded shimmy problem. Wheel shimmy can range in severity from an annoying vibration to a destructive force that can cause structural failure and loss of control of the aircraft. In this presentation, Will Fox, EAA technical counselor and flight advisor, discusses the causes of shimmy in tailwheel aircraft and what you can do to remedy it.
