You likely have a pretty good relationship with your mechanics and give them a verbal or formal written list of items you want them to check into and fix at the plane’s annual inspection. The back-and-forth between mechanics and pilots has generated some of the best aviation humor out there. Suppo...


By doing routine oil analysis on your engine at regular intervals, you can establish a health trend history specific to your particular engine.


If your mechanic seems overly cautious and self-protective in
his approach to maintaining your airplane, he has good reason.


Piston aircraft engines have a lot of moving parts. Way too many, if you ask me. The thought of thousands of separate metal parts reciprocating, rotating, wiggling, wobbling, and rubbing against one another thousands of times a minute ought to make you nervous—it sure does me. It’s something I t...


Just published is "How to Succeed in the Agricultural Aerial Aviation Business" by Rick McCord.


It would make sense for aircraft owners and mechanics to pay very close attention to flexible hoses—inspecting them carefully, replacing them as they age, and treating them gently during maintenance…except they don’t.


I have my own perspective. So do you. Whose perspective is the right one?


If you want to see dramatic performance improvements in your aircraft, start at the prop.

Aviation shop rates need to be higher than automotive ones, and A&P pay needs to be higher than automotive mechanic pay. Aircraft owners might not be thrilled with the rate increases, but it’s better than having an out-of-annual airplane that can’t fly for months.

“The annual I scheduled more than a year ago got cancelled on a five-week notice,” read a recent post to the Beechcraft Bonanza Owners Facebook group. The unhappy owner went on to say that it was going to be impossible for him to find another IA to do the annual inspection of his Bonanza, which ...

In the latest episode of the FAA's Pilot Minute video series, Federal Air Surgeon Susan Northrup outlines some important desert survival strategies and provides information on free post-crash training offered by the FAA’s Civil Aerospace Medical Institute.


I have an O-360 Mattituck (experimental) engine installed on my RV-7A. I have been using Aeroshell W100 Plus for more than 15 years. I have been using mogas solely for more than 10 years now, so no fear of lead deposits. This is my question: Would the use of fully synthetic (racing) oil be beneficia...

The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control during the landing roll in gusting wind conditions.


A recent post on SlashGear lists the 10 most iconic airplanes in aviation history. Topping the list is an airplane near and dear to the general aviation world, the Cessna 172.

Fuel leak?

Fuel leak?

The Cessna leaking fuel tanks appear to be a systemic problem and it is inconceivable that the FAA is unaware of the problem and obscene that there have been no ADs issued to warn pilots to have mandatory fuel tank inspections and ground the aircraft anytime there is the smell of fuel in the cockpit...
