How to Start a Type Club

Robbie Culver


Ever wanted to start a type club for your airplane type? Have you wanted to revive an existing type club but don’t know where to start? Join EAA Type Club Coalition (TCC) member Robbie Culver to hear about the TCC’s new “How to Start a Type Club” guide and how you can help strengthen your own airplane’s owner community through forming a new type club! Topics such as organization creation, governance, marketing and membership, risk management, and more will be discussed.

I Wanna Sue Someone
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch


When airplane hardware fails prematurely necessitating costly repairs, the owner's reaction is often to call a lawyer because "this wasn't my fault and I shouldn't have to pay for it." Most of the time, however, litigation doesn't provide a feasible remedy for such situations. In this webinar, Mike Busch recounts his correspondence with one such owner that illustrates why suing someone is usually not the answer.

What Is Scenario-Based Training: How to Use It in Your Everyday Flying
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Tom Johnson


Tom Johnson will explore how SBT, a training technique developed by the military and the airlines to help their pilots make better in-flight decisions, can be applied to your flying. He will demystify it and break it down to what it essentially is: good old hangar flying. We will introduce a basic structural model to help you be systematic in your scenario analysis. We will show you how and when you can and are required to use SBT. And finally, we will help you apply SBT to your personal aviation needs.


7 p.m. CDT

Loss of Control – Root Causes and Innovation Opportunities
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Loss of Control Committee Members


This webinar continues the discussion initiated at AirVenture to deeply define the root causes of Loss of Control accidents. A wide-ranging root cause model developed by the webinar panelists reveals that reducing fatalities is a very multi-dimensional problem – there is no one “silver bullet” solution, but instead a range of diverse technical, regulatory, training, culture and behavioral challenged that must work together.

This webinar, presented by the aviation and industry experts that created the root cause model, will first ground the participants in the different dimensions of it. Then, the panel will discuss the many open areas for innovation that still exist beyond those already known or proposed. This discussion intends to stimulate the innovative spirit of the EAA and broader aviation community to create novel, effective and implementable solutions to this persistent challenge of LOC accidents and fatalities.

Double Standard?
Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.

Mike Busch


The FAA doesn't make it easy to earn an A&P mechanic certificate. It requires 30 months full-time or 4,800 hours part-time experience swinging wrenches on aircraft before you're even eligible to take the exams. There are four exams: three knowledge tests and one all-day oral/practical exam. However, once a person earns his A&P, there is no requirement to get recurrent training — ever! And there are no mechanic "type ratings" — any A&P is legal to swing wrenches on anything from a J-3 Cub to a Boeing 747 to a Blackhawk helicopter. In this webinar, Mike Busch asks why the FAA requires pilots to get flight reviews every two years, instrument proficiency checks every six months, and type ratings for large airplanes and turbojets, yet it grants mechanics a lifetime license to swing wrenches on anything that flies without requiring any sort of periodic review or recurrent training.


7 p.m. CDT

Staying Current: Where Rules and Skills Collide
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Prof. H. Paul Shuch


It is sometimes said that no pilot is ever as current as the day he or she passes the checkride. Pilot currency has rules that must be met, and the pilot must be proficient to safely exercise pilot privileges. In this FAA Safety Team WINGS Award webinar, CFI and DPE Prof. H. Paul Shuch will teach you how to be the exception to the rule.


7 p.m. CDT

Inflight Weather Hazard Avoidance Strategies
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

Scott Dennstaedt


Not feeling confident of your grasp of how weather systems can affect the safety of a flight? Join Scott Dennstaedt, CFI, former NWS research meteorologist, and EAA’s subject matter expert on weather, for this webinar on deciphering whether to fly through a weather system, including such topics as icing, turbulence, convective hazards and more in this 90-minute webinar. You’ll learn what to look for while en route and strategies to avoid getting caught in adverse weather.


7 p.m. CDT

ADS-B Update: Equipping for 2020 and Reviewing the Latest Portable Receivers
Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.

John Zimmerman


Automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (better known as ADS-B) is quickly becoming a reality. Unfortunately, much of the information related to ADS-B is unnecessarily confusing. While ADS-B may be confusing, it’s probably the most important technological change you will experience as a pilot over the next two decades. So it’s worth the effort to learn this new language as the 2020 deadline for ADS-B Out equipage looms. Learn about the leading panel-mount ADS-B solutions plus the exciting developments in the portable market from Sporty’s ADS-B expert, John Zimmerman. We’ll cut through the jargon so you understand what’s important — and what’s not.
