Differential Diagnosis
Qualifies for FAA Wings and AMT credit

Mike Busch

 

To err is human, but when humans make mistakes working on aircraft, bad things can happen. Maintenance expert Mike Busch discusses the kinds and causes of maintenance errors and what can be done to prevent them. Mike thinks that some piston GA maintenance shops may have more distractions and less quality assurance than do airline and bizjet maintenance facilities, so savvy owners of GA aircraft need to act as final inspectors and take that role very seriously.
