Tucker Lambert
Brief Description:
Is turbocharged flying in your future? Pilots who fly turbocharged aircraft enjoy greatly improved climb and cruise performance, particularly noticeable at higher altitudes. But with great privilege comes great responsibility, and pilots operating turbo aircraft need to develop a deeper understanding of their engine systems and operations than many private pilots have of their trusty 4-cylinder trainer. The good news is it can be learned. 

In this seminar, San Carlos Flight Center CFII Tucker Lambert introduces the key areas you will need to safely and smoothly transition to a turbocharged airplane. He will cover the critical topics of proper power management, limits in use of maximum power during takeoff and climb, and general rules on leaning. This seminar is intended to be an in-depth introduction to flying turbocharged aircraft. We may discuss some aspects of various turbo-enhanced aircraft and engines, but issues and operational recommendations associated with specific aircraft and/or specific engines, while very important, will not be addressed.

Presenter Tucker Lambert is a full time CFII at San Carlos Flight Center. He was one of the Top Ten Outstanding Flight Instructors in the 2014 AOPA Flight Training Excellence Awards. He believes that a pilot is never truly done learning, and continues to expand his own knowledge and experience to share with his students.

San Carlos Flight Center was voted Best Flight School in the US in the 2013 AOPA Flight Training Excellence Awards. We are committed to promoting safety in general aviation through our evening safety seminar programs.
