Pilot-Owner Maintenance Training

Why attend the training?

Owning and operating an aircraft means more than just flying it. If you intend to become a knowledgeable owner who understands his aircraft, you can start with Aufwind courses on user assisted maintenance.

Within the EASA regulations a pilot-owner has many options to be involved in the maintenance of their aircraft. But neither the maintenance and airworthiness regulations, nor the performance of maintenance is part of the private pilot syllabus.

You can learn anything about maintenance regulations in our EASA maintenance seminars. If you want to learn how to perform maintenance on your aircraft, book one of our pilot-owner-maintenance training courses.

Guided by our trained technicians, you will learn how to perform typical pilot-owner maintenance tasks. The actual performed tasks at the On-Site training can vary widely depending on your aircraft type and the scheduled aircraft maintenance. Some expamples: 
• performing oil changes, servicing engine oil system
• checking and servicing ignition system
• servicing, checking, cleaning and lubricating of the airframe
• servicing batteries, checking electric system
• performing periodic maintenance checks (50h/100h)
• servicing and checking landing gear
• performing borescope inspections

In addition, you will learn the general skills of owner assisted aircraft maintenance
• Planning Maintenance Tasks according to the Design Approval Holders Instructions for Continuing Airworthiness
• Tool usage and Workshop Safety
• Performing preventive Maintenance
• Identifying Aircraft grade hardware
• Handling of aircraft components
