Air Tractor, in conjunction with the FAA’s Lubbock Flight Standards District Office, is sponsoring an opportunity for A&P mechanics to fulfill the annual training requirements for renewal of their Inspection Authorization (IA). A free Inspection Authorization Renewal Seminar will be held Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. C.S.T. at the Air Tractor training center at the company’s headquarters in Olney, Texas (ONY).

The FAA Inspection Authorization training is for A&P mechanics with an IA who conduct annual and progressive aircraft inspections and return to service major repairs and/or major alterations to aircraft. The seminar includes eight hours of information addressing airworthiness-related topics, human factors, and/or regulatory and policy guidance.

Attendees will learn from subject matter experts. Presentations include PT6 Engine Maintenance presented by Fletcher Sharp of Covington Aircraft; Overhaul and Repair of PT6 Engine Accessories presented by Greg Stewart of Kansas Aviation; an overview of Air Tractor Service Letters and Bulletins presented by Air Tractor President Jim Hirsch; and information on Maintenance DAR activities presented by Robert Salyers of Pratt & Whitney Canada. Seminar attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the Air Tractor aircraft manufacturing facilities. Attendees must present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, for access to the manufacturing plant.

The seminar and lunch for attendees are free of charge. Early registration is strongly recommended, as seats are limited. To RSVP, contact Air Tractor, Inc. at 940-564-5616, ext. 221.
