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.

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.
