About Us


The Aging General Aviation Education and Training website provides a single, stable access point to type-specific maintenance information. The goal of this site is to provide the general aviation community with the information needed to maintain the safety of older general aviation airplanes.
The site includes:

  • Recommended curriculum checklists and links for owners and pilots; A&P mechanics; avionics technicians; structural DERs and airframe ASEs; systems and equipment DERs and systems ASEs; and FAA ASIs.
  • A collection of “W.A.R.” stories collected to provide real-life examples of maintenance and repair mistakes in order to allow users to learn from them.
  • A list links relevant to aging general aviation maintenance and repair, as well as a directory of general aviation type clubs.
  • A database of FAA Special Airworthiness Information Bulletins, Advisory Circulars, Airworthiness Directives and Maintenance alerts.

Users may use the search engine on the home page to search for documents and links relevant to specific aircraft makes, models, and general maintenance and repair issues.

The site is hosted, developed and maintained by Wichita State University’s National Institute for Aviation Research under the supervision of the Federal Aviation Administration.
