New video helps aircraft owners increase safety and reduce operating costs

MAYNARD, MA, April 9, 2001 — Approach Aviation announced today the release of the first volume in The Educated Owner Video Series: Preventative Maintenance, sponsored by Unison Industries. The video, Preventative Maintenance, is an entertaining educational tool which teaches viewers the legal maintenance an aircraft owner can perform on his or her own aircraft. Whether pilots own or rent, this video is an ideal way to learn about common aircraft maintenance, increasing safety and reducing operating costs. The first video of its kind, Preventative Maintenance initially details the FAA╣s rules concerning what maintenance tasks an owner can legally perform. It then proceeds to instruct viewers on the proper tools and supplies for common maintenance tasks and follows with detailed, step-by-step demonstrations of Engine Inspections, Landing Light Replacement, Oil Changes, Spark Plug Maintenance and Tire and Wheel Servicing.

The Educated Owner Video Series is dedicated to helping aircraft owners and pilots increase safety and reduce the costs associated with aircraft ownership. The series provides valuable information concerning the acquisition, management and maintenance of general aviation aircraft, from an owner╣s prospective. Future volumes, currently in production, of The Educated Owner Video Series will address Annual Inspections as well as many other aspects of aircraft ownership and operation.

Retail price for Volume I: Preventative Maintenance is $34.95. It can be purchased directly from Approach Aviation on their website at www.ApproachAviation.com, or by phone, toll-free, (877) 564-4457. The video will also be available through select major retailers. Interested retailers should contact Jeff Simon, President, Approach Aviation at (877) 564-4457.

"The Educated Owner Video Series is a valuable resource in the aviation education market," said Jim Melvin, Director of Marketing for Unison Industries. "The more owners and pilots know about proper aircraft maintenance, and the more money they can save by legally doing some of the maintenance themselves, the more attainable and enjoyable flying will be."
