Webinars
May 1 — Powerplant Resurrection — Piston aircraft engines hate to sit unflown. Unfortunately, periods of disuse lasting months or even years are not uncommon. In this webinar, engine guru Mike Busch, A&P/IA, offers specific advice on how to revive an inactive engine in a fashion that minimizes the likelihood of collateral damage from the usual dry start scenario. He talks about how to properly prelubricate the engine before that critical first start, and how to operate it and assess its condition immediately afterward. Enroll now →
