Experimental aircraft can take advantage of the new powerful and lightweight properties of lithium batteries.

Major or Minor?
Qualifies for FAA Wings and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

Do you really need the FAA's blessing to install an extra cigarette lighter socket in your Bonanza, or a gear mirror on your Centurion? It all depends on whether the modification is deemed major or minor. Mike Busch discusses what the difference is, who decides, what paperwork and FAA involvement is needed -- and most important, how to maximize the chance the modification you want to make to your aircraft will be approved.

UNINSURED – Flying Naked!

Bob Mackey, Falcon Insurance Agency

 

Have you ever heard someone comment that they’re “flying naked” and wondered how that’s legal? The insurance world refers to the act of going without insurance as, “flying naked,” and in most states, it is legal. However, while it may be legal in your state, “flying naked” certainly is not advisable. In this webinar, Bob Mackey senior vice president of Falcon Insurance Agency will discuss the pros and cons of not buying aircraft insurance, how aircraft insurance works, cost vs. risk, skipping the insurance you may not need, and where to find an aviation insurance broker who can help you make the right decisions.

Tailwheel Flying Techniques
Qualifies for FAA Wings credit.

Glen Oliphant

 

Learning the art of tailwheel flying is both challenging and rewarding. It increases your skill sets and makes you a better pilot. Tailwheel flying can open up new opportunities and allow you to explore areas in aviation that have numerous tailwheel aircraft, such as aerobatic, bush/outback, classic, warbirds, and homebuilt. Glen Oliphant discusses the techniques of tailwheel flying and highlights which are the best tailwheel aircraft to purchase for the first time buyer.

7/5/17

8 p.m. CDT

Borescope Ascendancy
Qualifies for FAA Wings and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

The venerable compression check has been a mainstay of aviation maintenance since before WWII, but it's a crude and inaccurate method of assessing cylinder health. The borescope inspection is vastly more informative and reliable, and the cost of borescopes has come down so sharply in recent years that every aircraft owner should consider owning one. Mike Busch has packed this webinar with photos showing how to use a borescope to figure out what's really going on inside the cylinders of your engine.

Gauges to Glass: Transitioning to 21st Century Avionics
Qualifies for FAA Wings credit.

Prof. H. Paul Shuch

 

Any pilot who trained in a legacy aircraft has most likely mastered an efficient scan of the standard six-pack. Step into even the most basic modern experimental or light-sport aircraft, however, and you’re immediately overwhelmed by an array of avionics that would put most airliners to shame. In this webinar, longtime instrument flight instructor H. Paul Shuch will guide you into the 21st Century, helping you avoid information overload.

7 p.m. CDT

ADS-B Revisited: The 2020 Odyssey Continues
Qualifies for FAA Wings and AMT credit.

Prof. H. Paul Shuch

 

This past March, flight instructor H. Paul Shuch presented an EAA webinar on his avionics odyssey to achieve ADS-B 2020 compliance. In the intervening six months, he has completed his installation and testing, and taken several trips under the protective umbrella of traffic and weather data. Now he shares with you the lessons he has learned by flying in 21st century airspace.
