Maintenance Training Courses - QLD

These popular short courses start again in May 2021.

Aircraft Ownership
101

AHhhhhh.. the dream of owning your own aircraft.
Free to fly any time without booking and paying
those aircraft hire rates. Pop down to the hangar ,
clean the windscreen and blast off, enjoying the
freedom that is aviation, put her back in the hangar
and home by Lunch. Living the dream!!
If you think this is the reality or aircraft
ownership, I would suggest keep renting.
Insurance, Maintenance, Airworthiness Directives,
Parts, Hangerage, Aging Aircraft. The responsible
aircraft owner has a handle on all these and many
more necessary components of aircraft ownership and airworthiness. Depending upon how much
you fly, it may be less expensive to continue renting, but you cant take away that “I own an
aeroplane” feeling.
This ½ Day course will delve into what is legally required of an aircraft owner, what it is likely to cost
and how to prepare, forecast and manage aircraft continuing airworthiness. Everything from the
selection process, the pre-buy and how to avoid common pitfalls of owning your own aircraft.
