Fulton EAA Hosts The Monthly Safety Seminar
Maintenance Placards
Date and Time:
Friday, March 9, 2018, starting at 18:30 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Bill Abbott - Rochester FSDO FAASTeam PM
Brief Description:

In this presentation we’ll talk a little bit about recommendations from a work group that studies loss of control.  The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee or GAJSC is a government/industry group that studies GA accidents and makes recommendations for adoption of what they call safety enhancements. 

One of their safety enhancements addresses the problem of operating aircraft before they are ready to be returned to service after maintenance.  It doesn’t happen often but some General Aviation accidents have resulted from pilots inadvertently flying aircraft that were not airworthy.  The GAJSC feels that an “Out of Service” placard conspicuously placed in the cockpit can go a long way toward preventing such accidents.

We’ll discuss several scenarios related to this topic.

We’ll also discuss some basic maintenance knowledge that all pilots need in order to communicate effectively with mechanics and to operate aircraft safely after maintenance work has been done.
