Hidden Dangers of Cordless Screwdrivers, Impact Drivers, and Other Electrical Tools

Wed Feb 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 

It’s 2020. There are all manner of useful devices for working on cars and airplanes. But pilots and mechanics should know the hidden dangers.

Aviation fuels, lubricants, and cleaners are combustible and can build up fumes in enclosed spaces. Pilots and mechanics working on aircraft should know the hazards that electric tools can pose in a fume-filled environment.

SCFC has invited Chuck Jones, FAASTeam Program Manager for airworthiness from the San Jose FSDO to cover this topic. Chuck flew with the sheriff’s department in Florida before moving to Michigan and eventually California. He has owned a couple of helicopters and 2 1/2 airplanes. He started in aviation early, both as a pilot and a mechanic in Mesa AZ, at a Falcon Field FBO owned by his family. He was a crew chief in the Marine Corps and had a variety of jobs in the airlines.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn about the most effective tools for airplane repairs that have the least risk of ruining your airplane.
