The pre-flight inspection is a critical prerequisite for every flight. Pilots are taught how to perform one early on in training, but have you ever stopped to think about what is critical to check? What should you be looking for to identify potential issues? Wouldn’t you like to see through the eyes of a mechanic what they pay attention to?

San Carlos Flight Center invites A&P Mechanic Tim Davis to provide tips on how to properly conduct a pre-flight inspection. In this seminar, Tim will highlight what to look for and a mechanics perspective on how to look at a Cessna 172 when conducting a pre-flight inspection. Tim will describe common aircraft structure and systems as they relate to pre-flight inspections.

Through the eyes of an experienced mechanic, join us to get a different perspective on your pre-flight routine.


Tim Davis is an A&P and aircraft mechanic at San Carlos Flight Center.  A Bay Area native, he worked as a Quality Analyst for Electronic Arts and Blizzard Entertainment before completing aircraft maintenance training at City College of San Francisco and earning his A&P certificate.
