Upcoming broadcasts


August 15th, 2018 8:00 PM “What We Should Teach About Engines”

Presented by Thomas P. Turner, ATP, CFII and MEI.


Join Tom Turner as he shares important training concepts regarding aircraft engines that can prove to be invaluable lessons for student pilots.  Why do flight instructors need to teach about engines? Engine performance management, power loss and engine failure procedures, and transition training into higher performance aircraft are just a few. These skill sets are not typically taught during pilot certificate and ratings training. If flight instructors don’t teach about aircraft engines, then who will?
