We have the freedom with Amateur Built aircraft (in Canada) to perform & sign off the required Annual Inspection, but do all owners / builders know what constitutes a proper & legally performed inspection entails?

In this course we go into the why's, what's & how's to this required process, and know in the end that you did all to assure your aircraft is truly "safe for flight".

Regulations compliance will be discussed, as well detailed examples of items to be inspected in the varying types of constructions and systems.  

Hands-on time will be spent in various maintenance procedures

such as compression tests, brake / bearing maintenance, ignition

timing etc.  You will be instructed on how to create a Maintenance Schedule for your aircraft, inspection check list, and cover off schedule items.

You owe it to yourself, and all who ride with you to know the real 'condition' of the plane you are riding in!
