  • Where to store your log books, and who should do it.
  • What documents and paperwork do you need, and what does your mechanic need.
  • Who keeps your log book and other paperwork updated – you or your mechanic.
  • Are service bulletins required? Do mechanics look at service bulletins (if you don’t ask them to)?
  • How often do you need a pitot static altimeter transponder check?
  • Is TBO mandatory in Part 91?
  • Owner maintenance: What can you do, and what can’t you do, and what can you do so long as your A&P or IA signs off.
