Are you a master of the systems in your aircraft?  Do you understand the fine differences between the ignition system vs. the electrical system? When was the last time you refreshed your knowledge of engine principles or the the induction system? If it has been a while or you just need a refresher, this is the place to be.

San Carlos Flight Center invites CFI Daniel Sanchez Ruiz to talk about aircraft engines and some of the other systems used on most small general aviation aircraft. The material will be presented at the level of student pilots training for a private certificate.  If you’re not a natural mechanic, these aircraft systems can seem daunting, but Daniel will give you a good foundation on which to learn.

We encourage all of you to invest in your knowledge and abilities, and refocus your attention to become the best pilot you can be. Join us for this seminar, and we bet you won’t be disappointed.


Daniel Sanchez Ruiz is a flight instructor at San Carlos Flight Center. He began his aviation career with maintenance training in Caracas, Venezuela, but quickly moved into flying as a pilot. After moving to the United States seven years ago, he attained his Commercial certificate, instrument rating, and eventually CFI. He came to SCFC after working at SFO as a ramp agent, and has trained at Tradewinds Aviation in San Jose.
