About this FAASafety Wings Course

Accident investigations have discovered causal factors resulting from unreasonable expectations of aircraft performance — especially when operating at the edges of the aircraft weight and balance envelope. Performance of each aircraft changes over time. If not tracked precisely, planning an accurate amount of fuel as well as executing flights at optimum speed and altitude is a challenge and may easily lead to loss of fuel efficiency. Comparing your performance with the POH will enable you to develop accurate performance predictions and reasonable performance expectations. 

Changes in aircraft performance can be a warning sign of developing mechanical issues. Although all of the fancy engine analyzers and flight performance monitors are great and becoming more affordable, performance monitoring can still be accomplished without their use. Join us for a discussion on aircraft performance monitoring and the benefits for the pilot.
