Every good pilot has one important tool that’s needed before evening starting the engine – the preflight checklist. From day one of flight training, you’re taught the importance of not only performing, but understanding your preflight inspection. But are there some specific things to look for that aren’t clearly spelled out in your checklist? Today we welcome Dean Showalter to the podcast to walk us through some ideas.


Dean is an A&P/IA and pilot himself based at Classic Aviation at the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport in Virginia. Dean also produces the Airplane Owner Maintenance Podcast, a show that’s informative and valuable for mechanics, airplane owners and even student pilots.
