The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee encourages the General Aviation community to install and use angle-of-attack systems for better awareness of the stall margin. Studies suggest that a significant number of General Aviation accidents could have been prevented had the airman been trained how to identify stalls through both hands-on visuals and AOA technology.

Acquiring experience in a wide range of environments improves overall pilot performance. Installing new technology on an aircraft goes beyond the installation to becoming comfortable with an additional piece of equipment and how it can help the pilot.

FAAST Seminar – Pre-Ignition and Detonation February 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join EAA Chapter 104 on February 29th for a FAAST Seminar at KVPZ.

Go to the event page for more details.

Pre-ignition and detonation are responsible for a significant number of engine failures in General Aviation aircraft each year. Pre-ignition occurs when the air-fuel charge ignites while the piston is still compressing the mixture. Detonation is a violent explosion process after the compression stroke near or just after top dead center. This seminar will acquaint pilots with the hazards of pre-ignition and detonation events.
