New video helps aircraft owners increase safety and reduce Annual Inspection costs

MAYNARD, MA, July 27, 2001 — Approach Aviation announced today the release of the second volume in The Educated Owner Video Series: The Annual Inspection. The video, The Annual Inspection, is an entertaining educational tool which teaches viewers how an aircraft owner can manage the maintenance of their aircraft and play a key role in the Annual Inspection process. Whether pilots own or rent, this video is an ideal way to learn about aircraft maintenance, increasing safety and reducing operating costs. The first video of its kind, The Annual Inspection initially details the FAA's rules concerning Annual and 100 Hour inspections. It then proceeds to instruct viewers on preparation for the Annual Inspection, how to choose a maintenance facility, and how owners can take part in the process. The video then follows with a step-by-step overview of the Annual Inspection process and what their rights and responsibilities are concerning the discrepancies found during the inspection.

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. Volume I: Preventative Maintenance teaches viewers how to perform legal, owner preventative maintenance on general aviation aircraft. Volume III: Introduction to Aircraft Ownership is currently in production and teaches all about purchasing, inspecting and owning an aircraft. Future volumes will continue to address all aspects of aircraft ownership, maintenance and operation.
