Join EAA Chapter 104 this Saturday, September 25, 2021
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.
Aircraft component Service Bulletins provided by the manufacturer are created in response to servicing issues that may affect airworthiness. Depending on circumstances, compliance with Service Bulletins may or may not be mandatory, but they should always be considered to ensure continued airworthiness.
Online access to Service Bulletins and Service Instructions is readily available to aircraft owners, pilots and mechanics.
Keep in mind that this meeting will be subject to any new or ongoing COVID restrictions and may be cancelled up to 24-48 hours in advance. Right now we are GO!
We will be doing a group VFR transponder check at VPZ on June 29th. The tech is supposed to arrive at my hangar Q7 at 8:30 am local. We are looking for more participants. […] The fee is $80 plus a split of the $60 travel fee. Last time the guy moved to each hangar to do the check. If you get anyone interested please get a name and phone number so we can keep track. Thanks.
Please show up at our June 14th meeting at the KVPZ pavilion or send Ed a message to participate. If you can’t do either of those, please use our contact form.
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.
