Do you work on your own airplane? (For certain tasks, the FAA says you can.)

Some of these tasks will require safety wiring.

Do you know how to perform safety wiring in a way that nothing falls off your airplane while you're flying?

Imagine being able to perform EVERY safety wire job with confidence, knowing it will keep all the critical components in place while you fly.

And imagine the confidence and peace of mind you'll enjoy in the air.

Don't take chances with mediocre or improper safety wiring.

If you feel like you're floundering on your own, it's time to do something different. Take Dean's course, grow your safety wiring skill, and take pride in a job well done!

This course includes:

  • A description of required tools.
  • Detailed video tutorials.
  • Techniques to ensure safe and professional safety wire results.


"I work on aircraft for a living and this is a great example of quality lockwiring. Nicely done, Dean!" Alex Eddy

“I watched your YouTube video on safety wiring a brake caliper several times. It really helped me figure out how to safety wire the oil filter and oil sump suction screen on my Lycoming engine. I’ve now changed my own oil several times.” Matt Reedy, 1969 Piper Arrow owner

I'm a podcasting airplane mechanic who loves both planes and people. I've been working at Classic Aviation, LLC in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia for the past 25 years.

Here are some things I've learned to love about airplane maintenance:

  • Annual inspections.
  • Working with airplane owners.
  • Retractable landing gear, both inspecting and rigging.
  • Basic electrical troubleshooting.
  • Magnetos and ignition systems.
  • Ground runups and troubleshooting.
  • Out-of-the-ordinary situations.
  • Excellent safety wiring!
  • Servicing landing gear shock struts.

In November of 2015, I launched the Airplane Owner Maintenance Podcast, and the best part has been meeting fascinating airplane owners.

I love to learn, and I love teaching strategic maintenance content to airplane owners. Whether you are new to aviation, or a seasoned aviator, I am interested in your further development and learning!

If you're ready to take your safety wiring skills to a whole new level, or to learn how to service your landing gear shock struts, I would be honored to be your instructor.
