Owners of microlight aircraft are entitled to carry out ongoing maintenance on their own aircraft. This course aims to empower owners who have not built their aircraft or had other aviation industry experience with the knowledge of safe aircraft practice. The aviation industry has some odd quirks which are known to catch out even those with an experienced mechanical background. We will look at technical best practice, the legislative environment, recording maintenance and legal responsibilities. As with all SAA courses, we keep the tone informal and practical, with lots of hands – on interaction and practical examples.

Cost $120.00 (SAA Members $100.00)

Course starts 9am Saturday and finish early – Mid afternoon Sunday. Bring writing materials. Tea and coffee facilities on site. Lunches can be purchased on the day.
