Columbia Aircraft Unveils Online Education Program

New White Paper Series Covers Broad Variety Of Topics

Quick quiz: what are the differences between turbocharged and turbo-normalized? Unclear on the nuances of spin certification? Want to know how range affects payload? Answers to these questions and many more can be found in a new white paper series recently published on Columbia Aircraft’s website.

Currently, the website features original white papers covering subjects including:

  • Certification - Type Certificates and Supplemental Type Certificates
  • Induction Systems - Normally-Aspirated, Turbo-Normalized and Turbo-Charged
  • Cockpit Integration – Integrated Systems and Integrated Components
  • Inadvertent Icing Protection – Electric, Pneumatic and Chemical
  • Mission Flexibility – Range versus Payload
  • Damage History
  • Spin Certification – Spin Resistance, Spin Recoverable and Equivalent Level of Safety
  • Insurance - Importance of the First Quote
  • Aircraft Ownership for the First-Time Buyer

“Clearly there is always a bit of confusion in the marketplace regarding the choices facing the new aircraft buyer,” said Columbia Aircraft Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Randy S. Bolinger. “Marketing hyperbole is partially to blame, but the larger culprit is the rapid technological evolution in the aviation industry over the past several years.”

Bolinger stresses the content of the program, dubbed Columbia Aircraft University “Education on the Highest Plane,” is factual, and not marketing hype. Specific aircraft types or products are only used for example purposes where necessary to illustrate a point.

“I believe that we’ve created a valuable resource for aviation consumers and enthusiasts alike,” Bolinger said.

Those interested may access Columbia Aircraft’s white paper series by going to the company’s website and clicking on the “White Papers” button in the main navigation bar or by visiting the FMI link below. People are encouraged to check back occasionally, as the company is working on several additional topics and plans to update the site frequently.
