“There's a dirty little secret about aviation maintenance: it often breaks aircraft instead of fixing them.” “Manifesto” is the much-anticipated first book from renowned aviation columnist and speaker Mike Busch. Written in typical no-nonsense style, it lays out the basis of Mike's “minimalist” maintenance philosophy for owner-flown general aviation aircraft. An owner who follows the book's guidance can save a small fortune on maintenance costs and end up with a safer, more reliable aircraft. Owners are advised to perform the absolute least amount of maintenance required to make their aircraft safe, reliable and legal… and nothing more. The book explains in detail why engine and propeller TBOs and most other manufacturer-prescribed maintenance intervals should be disregarded. And “Manifesto” explains exactly how to do it. About the Author: Mike Busch is arguably the best-known A&P/IA in general aviation. In 2008, he was honored by the FAA as “National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year.” Mike has been a prolific aviation writer for more than four decades. His “Savvy Aviator” columns have appeared in numerous publications including EAA Sport Aviation, AOPA's Opinion Leader's Blog, AVweb, and magazines for the three largest GA type clubs (ABS, CPA, and COPA). He is renowned for his free monthly maintenance webinars and his standing-room-only forums at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Mike has been a pilot and aircraft owner for 45 years with 7,500+ hours logged, and he is a CFIA/I/ME. He's founder and CEO of Savvy Aircraft Maintenance Management, Inc., the world's largest firm providing maintenance-management services for owner-flown aircraft.

I am an aircraft mechanic, and often I get people exclaiming how wonderful it must be to work with airplanes all the time, how they wished they had my job; and just like others in many 'cool' professions, I internally shake my head, and wonder if they'd still say that, if they only knew. Here, you will find aviation stories that were passed down to me, and others of things that happened to me. Which is which, is it tall or is it true? As with most things in life, it's often a mix of both; though some of the tales are indeed pure fiction. The tales will have you believing in Superman, in form of an airplane that can cut through radio towers and fly on like nothing happened, that physics can be suspended, that the cherry pie is the best choice always, and that that I only have three toes on one foot. The poetry will expose the inner voice that speaks to us sometimes when we day dream about our airplanes. Or describe the recurring nightmares that we have when we are so eaten up by our work, and aircraft, that our REM sleep is polluted with it. How we love to hate them, and hate to love them, because she is in the end, an aluminum bitch.

Volume 2 of The Thinking Pilot's Flight Manual carries on the widely praise, penetrating, and clear-headed approach of Volume I, addressing matters of importance to pilots that ordinary flight training manuals never tough. It delves into everything from the realities of making the go/no-go decision during the takeoff roll, nailing spot landings, which emergencies to practice, and how to take babies and kids flying. It explores how we scare our passengers without realizing it, IFR training in IMC, and takes a hard look at spin training. Rick Durden is one of three 2015 recipients of the Endeavor Award, honoring volunteer pilots who have made significant contributions to flying to serve the public. For 25 years he has made flights in remote areas of the U.S. and Central America in support of conservation. He is an Airline Transport-rated pilot with experience in over 200 types of airplanes, a practicing aviation attorney who has been involved in hundreds of aircraft accident cases, writer, aviation magazine editor, safety counselor, and flight instructor.
