What comes up must come down.
And when you’re piloting or flying as a passenger in any type of aircraft, you don’t want to come down without the right type of landing gear. And while the landing gear is perhaps best associated with, well, landing, it also helps with aircraft takeoff and with taxiing on runways. It’s also imperative for supporting the aircraft when it is parked in the hangar. The bottom line is that landing gear doesn’t just play an important role, but perhaps a bigger and more significant role than what you might initially think.
In this post, we’ll cover the four main types of landing gear, the pros and cons of each type... read more
Whether you’re a new aircraft owner or you own a fleet of aircraft and have long had your pilot’s license, it’s no secret that planes are going to need their fair share of maintenance over time.

Preventative maintenance is important to perform on any major appliance or vehicle if you want to maximize your return on investment. But it’s arguably even more important on an aircraft. After all, you can’t exactly pull your plane over to the side of the road in mid-air and wait for a tow truck to get you to the nearest repair shop. It’s a big part of the reason why the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has identified such a comprehensive list of maintenance tasks – and these aren’t just guidelines, they’re necessary if you want to uphold an aircraft’s airworthiness certificate.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at read more
