The 3 rules for handling aircraft breakdownsTuesday, January 248:00pm ETMike Busch of Savvy MaintenanceSign Up

If you’re traveling by GA airplane, there’s nothing worse than experiencing a breakdown away from home. You’ll probably be stuck somewhere you don’t want to be, dependent on strangers, and completely outside your comfort zone. If you’re not careful, you can wind up getting stuck for days or weeks and wasting thousands of dollars. Join renowned maintenance wizard Mike Busch—arguably the best-known A&P/IA in general aviation— as he explains what pilots and aircraft owners need to know and consider when it comes to maintaining an aircraft. He’ll explain when to fix an airplane, when not to fix an airplane, and how to make sure you get good service. Mike Busch leads Savvy Aircraft Maintenance and supports Sporty’s Breakdown Assistance Program. Savvy is the first and only organization to provide professional maintenance management for owner-flown aircraft, delivering expert guidance and representation between maintenance technicians and aircraft owners.
