asked to help complete an engine
change. Because of distraction,
fatigue or failure to read the
manual, the right side stack was not
torqued. The aircraft was destroyed
by fire after the right exhaust stack
fell off the engine in-flight. In a
better-designed system, a wellrested mechanic, closer supervision
or a more-positive company culture
may have prevented the accident.
The FAA is more proactive and
now identifies and obtains corrective
action on all regulatory and safety
hazards. When violations are
intentional, serious and or systemic,
FAA penalties may be in the form of
letters, fines or certificate action.

I recommend all repair station
personnel periodically consult FAA
Order 8900, the FAA inspector's
handbook, to see exactly what the FAA
will be looking for before an inspection
or making manual revisions. You can
find it at fsims.faa.gov. Type "repair
station" in the search box.
Why did you open a
business after retiring?
I still wanted to participate
and contribute to aviation. I
realized I have a lot of avionics
experience to share. I wanted an
FAA repair station because people
tend to neglect to have their
transponder checked. Now when I

do maintenance, if the transponder
check isn't done, I just do it.
Why do you limit your
business to just serving
friends and family?
I don't want my maintenance
ventures to adversely or financially
impact any of the local aviation
businesses, and I didn't want to be
obligated to a rigid schedule.
Since you're working again
on the business side, what
do you think about FAA
inspections?
I look forward to FAA inspections.
They keep my mind sharp. q
