182 Systems and Procedures

Systems & Procedures Seminar for the Cessna 182R and Earlier

Next Location: Tulsa, Oklahoma September 21 - 22, 2019

CPA will conduct a total-immersion, full two-day seminar on the Cessna 182 Legacy in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This course is designed for those that want to operate the Cessna 182 with the confidence of understanding all of its systems and operation. If you own, fly or maintain any of the Cessna 182 Legacy models, this course is for you. The two days of classes will cover the details of every system in the aircraft to include: flight controls, landing gear, electrical, hydraulic, fuel, pressurization, propeller, power plant and engine management. This year we’re also adding tactical and strategic engine data analysis. Almost everyone has a digital engine monitor with data logging and this new offering will help take a lot of the mystery out of reading the monitor to achieve its full potential.  You’ll gain more useful and vital information about your 182 than you knew there was to know.

Paul New will be your instructor for this class. Paul holds an FAA Airframe & Powerplant Certificate with FAA Inspection Authorization. He was an FAA Designated Airworthiness Representative for a few years as well. In 2007 he was selected as the FAA National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year. He was an original account manager for Savvy Aviation Maintenance Management and still manages a number of clients. Paul also provides technical support for the members of the Cessna Pilots Association and writes monthly articles for the magazine.

The course will be held at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Jenks, OK. Jenks is just South of Downtown Tulsa. For those flying in we will be using Christiansen Aviation on the Richard L. Jones Airport.

The Holiday Inn sits on the banks of the beautiful Arkansas River. Right next door is the Oklahoma Aquarium and directly behind the hotel is the Waterfront Grill. There is a road and walking trail between the hotel and Riverwalk, which is a dining and shopping area. Then for those with a little spending money and a car the River Spirit Casino is just across the bridge. The Tulsa International Airport has many commercial flights available. The airport is approximately 25 minutes from the hotel and Jones Airport.

You can make your room reservations at the Holiday Inn Express by calling 918-296-7300. Be sure you let them know you are attending the CPA 182 Course. The room rate is $96 per night plus tax. This includes a free hot breakfast and free wi-fi. Reservations MUST be made by August 30th to guarantee rate and room availability.
