TRANSPORT CANADA APPROVED RECURRENCY TRAINING
Aircraft Maintenance and Airworthiness Safety Seminar
This seminar meets the 24-month recurrent training requirements from Transport Canada.
The training will delve into the details of aircraft owner responsibilities for the regular preventative and annual maintenance programs for their personal aircraft. As new aircraft owners you have "care and custody" of your prized possession. With ownership comes the opportunity to manage your one-aircraft fleet like the pros.
The seminar will begin with a short presentation from ForeFlight, a sponsor of COPA's Safety Program. ForeFlight’s Adrian Tegler will speak on how to use their logbook to keep track of aircraft maintenance items as well as their checklist to ensure pilots are fit to fly and the aircraft checks have been completed.
