How Mags Work
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

The spark plugs in most piston aircraft engines are still powered by 120-year-old technology. Since so many of us are still flying behind these archaic “tractor mags” it’s probably a good idea for us to understand how they work.

ATC and You: How to Make the Most of Flying VFR
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Pilots avoid controlled airspace for many reasons, but in so doing they don’t take advantage of all the system has to offer. This course will identify reasons why pilots should communicate with ATC, utilize flight following, and embrace controlled airspace. We will identify misunderstood procedures, clarify phraseology, and demonstrate how to operate in the system more efficiently. Pilots of all experience levels will benefit from attending this course.

ATC and You: Balancing IFR Flying and the Efficiency of Controlled Airspace
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Richard Kennington and Bob Obma

 

Do you know the impact your flight has on the ATC system? Many pilots don’t realize how they are affecting the flow of air traffic, but with a little knowledge everyone can contribute to the safety and efficiency of the airspace system. This course will explore some misunderstood procedures and give a behind the scenes perspective that will help you make the most of your flying in controlled airspace. We will use IFR examples but the topics covered will benefit VFR pilots as well.

Pushing Past TBO - Running your Rotax Engine "On Condition"
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Prof. H. Paul Shuch

 

Many of us are experienced with the ubiquitous Lycomings and Continentals, engines based upon 1930s designs. The Rotax 900 series of aircraft engines, which now power 80% of the light-sport fleet, are noted for their reliability and longevity. These modern European designs defy our notion of time between overhauls. In this FAA WINGS and AMT Award webinar, Prof. H. Paul Shuch, a noted flight instructor and Rotax maintenance technician, tells you why you can forget everything you know about TBO and how you can keep your Rotax operational far longer than you expected.
