A deeper look at Airworthiness
Things I learned as a new owner that I didn't learn as a pilot.

James Sloan
Brief Description:

Do you remember hearing the term “airworthy” during your Private training or your last checkride? How well did you understand the concept? How sure are you that the plane you're flying is airworthy, and who decides? After flying for several years James decided to buy an airplane, and  was driven to learn a great deal more about this nuanced topic that he had not previously understood. In this seminar, James will share a deeper look at airworthiness for those who are considering ownership or those interested in expanding their knowledge beyond the basics. This is highly recommended for all as you can never know too much about this important topic.


James Sloan earned his PPL in 2002 but took several years off before joining SCFC and getting requalified in 2017 and earning his instrument rating in 2018. He currently has about 350 hours in single engine airplanes and own 1.6 Cessnas.
