Antenna Ground Plane
Antenna ground planes for composite or wood aircraft can be made in various ways. EAA Technical Counselor and A&P/IA mechanic Dick Koehler demonstrates how to use copper foil tape to make a light weight and effective antenna ground plane.
Electrical Volt-Ohm Multimeter
Dick Koehler discusses the use of a digital volt/ohm multimeter which is a useful tool for diagnosing electrical issues.
Installing Circuit Breakers
In this video, Dick and Bob Koehler show how to install circuit breakers for your panel. Dick and Bob are both Technical Counselors, A&P aircraft mechanics with Inspection Authorization (IA), and SportAir Workshop instructors.
Key Switch Installation
Tracy Buttles from the EAA staff demonstrates how to install a ignition key switch into an instrument panel in a way that locks it in place and prevents it from rotating within the mounting hole.
Labeling Electrical Wires
Labeling electrical wires is sometimes overlooked during the building process. EAA volunteer Fred Stadler shows how effective a label maker can be to mark heat shrink tubing and install on wires as a method to mark wires for later identification.
