New video helps aircraft
owners increase safety and reduce operating costs
MAYNARD, MA, April 9, 2001 Approach Aviation
announced today the release of the first volume in The
Educated Owner Video Series: Preventative Maintenance,
sponsored by Unison Industries. The video, Preventative Maintenance,
is an entertaining educational tool which teaches viewers
the legal maintenance an aircraft owner can perform on his
or her own aircraft. Whether pilots own or rent, this video
is an ideal way to learn about common aircraft maintenance,
increasing safety and reducing operating costs. The first
video of its kind, Preventative Maintenance initially details
the FAA╣s rules concerning what maintenance tasks an owner
can legally perform. It then proceeds to instruct viewers
on the proper tools and supplies for common maintenance tasks
and follows with detailed, step-by-step demonstrations of
Engine Inspections, Landing Light Replacement, Oil Changes,
Spark Plug Maintenance and Tire and Wheel Servicing.
The Educated Owner Video Series is dedicated to helping
aircraft owners and pilots increase safety and reduce the
costs associated with aircraft ownership. The series provides
valuable information concerning the acquisition, management
and maintenance of general aviation aircraft, from an owner╣s
prospective. Future volumes, currently in production, of The
Educated Owner Video Series will address Annual Inspections
as well as many other aspects of aircraft ownership and operation.
Retail price for Volume I: Preventative Maintenance is $34.95.
It can be purchased directly from Approach Aviation on their
website at www.ApproachAviation.com,
or by phone, toll-free, (877) 564-4457. The video will also
be available through select major retailers. Interested retailers

"The Educated Owner Video Series is a valuable resource in
the aviation education market," said Jim Melvin, Director
of Marketing for Unison Industries. "The more owners and pilots
know about proper aircraft maintenance, and the more money
they can save by legally doing some of the maintenance themselves,
the more attainable and enjoyable flying will be."
