More than 80 Airframe and Powerplant mechanics attended a nine-hour Inspection Authorization Renewal seminar held Saturday at Penn College’s Lumley Aviation Center in Montoursville. The Federal Aviation Administration requires aircraft mechanics holding inspection authorization credentials to receive several hours of training each year. Presenters included Scott Starick, of Aero Mech inc., who discussed Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums certification and maintenance; Thomas D. Inman, associate professor of aviation at Penn College, human-error reduction by development of a “safety net” based on personality type; Mike Caldera, of Lycoming Engines, Lycoming engine maintenance; and Penn College aviation instructor William P. “Scott” Welch and various FAA representatives, who addressed aviation law. Some of the participants traveled to and from the event in their own aircraft.
