  • Let’s talk Airworthiness! Brandon Braithwaite, A&P and IA, will walk us through what is looked for during an annual inspection. Come get your inspection questions answered and learn more about what you can do to prepare for inspection and save money. In August, Brandon will return to walk us through owner-performed maintenance.
  • Operating your airplane efficiently – learn the power settings and management techniques, airspeeds and altitudes that result in fuel savings and longer engine life.
  • Using engine monitors – CHT, EGT, lean of peak? What does all of that mean? Let’s demystify some of these concepts and learn how to detect problems earlier rather than later.
  • BBQ!
