Preventive Maintenance that You Can Do with IA/A&P Robert Borregard

Airplane operators have authority to do preventive maintenance on certificated aircraft. This can offset some of the high cost of airplane maintenance, and it can be personally satisfying and educational for those who are willing and able. But just what is considered preventive maintenance in the eyes of the regulator? Robert Borregard, IA/A&P will address what you can legally do without an A&P’s supervision, the requirements you must follow, and when you should get professional advice. He will also offer tips on troubleshooting engine problems and remedies that can save money and time.
