Webinars
April 4 — Errors of Distraction — Just as pilots need a sterile cockpit during takeoff, landing, and other critical phases of flight, mechanics also need a distraction-free workplace when performing safety-critical maintenance tasks. Unfortunately, many GA maintenance shops are distraction-rich environments and when mechanics get distracted, serious errors of omission can occur. In this webinar, Mike Busch A&P/IA talks about how frequently such errors occur and what protective measures aircraft owners and pilots should take. Enroll now →
