superiorA series of free, 45-minute educational forums will give aircraft owners and pilots real-world tips to increase the performance and life of their piston aircraft engines, while lowering the cost of ownership, operation and maintenance.

Representatives of Superior Air Parts, Inc. announced that the company is partnering with Aircraft Specialties Services, CamGuard and RAM Aircraft to host a series of 18 educational forums during Oshkosh AirVenture 2016.

“We are committed to finding ways to help make flying more affordable for our customers,” stated Scott Hayes, VP of Sales and Marketing, Superior Air Parts, Inc. “That is exactly what these forums are created to do. What pilots and owners will learn are proven procedures and insights that will help them reduce the cost of flying while extending their engine’s operational life and lowering maintenance costs.”

Superior’s Vice President of Product Support, Bill Ross, who has been an FAA A&P for over 30 years and who also recently earned an FAA Inspector’s Authorization (IA), will host the 2016 Forum Series. The complete list of 2016 Forum Series presenters include:

Steven Boggess, Engine Production Manager, RAM Aircraft, LP.

Randy Bibb, Sales Manager, CamGuard

Ed Kollin, Technical Director, Aircraft Specialties Services

Randy Harris, General Manger, Aircraft Specialties Services

“These sessions are not about theory or opinions,” Ross said. “What we are going to deliver is proven information that the other presenters and I have gained over our various careers. These are practices and tips pilots can use every time they fly.”

The free, 45-minute Forum sessions will be held daily at the Superior Air Parts tent (#257), which is just north of the Bendix/King Hangar B. Forum times are 9:00, 11:00 and 12:30, Monday through Saturday.
