Brief Description:

FAASTeam September 2022 Topic of the Month: Pre-Flight After Maintenance

Register here:

The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) have determined that a significant number of general aviation fatalities could be avoided if pilots were to conduct more thorough preflight inspections of aircraft that have just been returned to service. In-flight emergencies have been the direct result of maintenance personnel who have serviced or installed systems incorrectly.

Leaning Points:
•    Learn all you can about the maintenance that was performed.
•    Don’t assume the part(s) replaced are the only parts removed. 
•    Pay attention to trim positions. Check for unimpeded flight control surface deflections. Make sure they  move in the correct directions!
•    Make sure all inspection panels are secure and their fasteners are tight. 
•    Check fuel tank for water, sediment, and correct fuel grade.
•    After an oil change, always check the engine oil level to ensure it has the correct amount of oil. 
•    Always check your logbook and paperwork prior to flight to ensure records have been entered correctly.
•    If you see a warning tag/sign on the aircraft, or on the sign-out or status board, DO NOT FLY THE AIRCRAFT! Check with the maintenance facility prior to taking the aircraft.
•    Know your plane.  Participate in, or observe your mechanic perform, an annual or 100 hour inspection.
