Advanced Pilot Seminars (APS) has unveiled a web-based seminar. Now in its fourth year, APS has taught almost a thousand pilots and mechanics science-based techniques of engine management, backed by data acquired on the most advanced piston engine test facility in the world.
APS teaches methods for operating piston aircraft engines for maximum fuel economy, safety and longevity, combining data from the engine makers with research from millions of hours of engine operation. George Braly, John Deakin and Walter Atkinson started the program in 2002 with seminars in Ada, Okla.
The online course, which uses streaming video so that no software is loaded on your computer, costs $395, compared to $995 to attend the course in person.
