University of North Dakota Aviation Graduate Student, Robert Teal is conducting research for a thesis on continued education for airframe and powerplant mechanics. Robert is asking the PAMA community for input to support his study.
The purpose of the research is to determine the willingness of aircraft mechanics and aircraft maintenance organizations to employ recurrent knowledge based training requirements.
All certificated mechanics are asked to participate in a short, 5 minute survey to support the research.
The survey will be open until March 15.

FLIGHT SAFETY DETECTIVES EPISODE 12: Asking the Hard Questions at Boeing and Looking at Recent General Aviation Crashes
John and Greg share observations from their recent visit to Boeing headquarters. During executive briefings they asked the same tough questions they pose in their podcasts, sometimes stumping the experts.
They share how the visit validated the observations they have shared about the LionAir and Ethiopian Airline crashes. They also found more details that are important to finding the answers that will lead to increased air safety.
This episode also digs into two Thanksgiving weekend general aviation crashes. John and Greg walk you through their initial observations and provide a detailed explanation of how investigators will determine the causes of both accidents.
